NICARAGUA EMERGENCY FLOOD RELIEF
Tropical Storm Nate hit Nicaragua on the evening of October 4th and by the early morning of October 5th, mass flooding and devastation had ensued. The rains kept up until Saturday afternoon, keeping the rivers high and access to many areas impossible. The area where we work and live, Tola, was impacted heavily by the rains and flash flooding. Hundreds of people lost homes and all of their belongings. Power has been out for over 72 hours as of Oct. 7, and the wells are contaminated, which means people have no drinking water or a way to bathe.
Our beloved Martita, the nurse who runs our ultrasound program, lost everything in her home when the river rose and swept through – she and her family barely made it out alive. My daughter, Sarah, and her family evacuated by walking in waist-deep rushing waters to high ground.
People are sleeping in the streets, in the schools, in family members’ homes, with no food, no water, no clothes. We at MOG NEED TO HELP – we need YOUR HELP! PLEASE PARTNER WITH US – PHASE ONE is to raise the funds needed in order the buy items in Nicaragua to distribute..
100% of your donations to Missions of Grace will go to your designated cause.
Please use either of these methods to contribute.
LATER WE WILL SEE ACTUAL GOODS DONATION NEEDS. But, we are always in need of financial assistance.
If you are an “app: user” donate via the Square Cash app: This goes directly from your debit card to the MOG bank account – Cash it to firstname.lastname@example.org OR to 2108727112. Indicate “hurricane relief” in the “for” field. Thank you!
