Disaster Final Report: Hurricane Julia in Nicaragua - March 27, 2022
As of March 2023, the affects of Hurricane Julia have diminished in Nicaragua. In total, 683 participants and one Child Development Center (CDC) were impacted by the storm. When the storm hit in late 2022, CDCs were able to utilize Disaster Relief Funds to provide families with crucial items which included hygiene kits (toilet paper, mosquito nets, face masks, wash buckets), food kits (rice, beans, cooking oil, sugar, salt, coffee, matches, oatmeal) and shelter kits (sponge mattresses, tarps, towels, blankets). Thankfully, all participants have returned to their homes, and the CDC has returned to normal program activities.
Thank you for praying for all participants, families and CDC staff members.
