Help Los Ramos Rebuild

Our friends on Ometepe really need your help! Some have lost everything. Deb lives on the island and is organizing resources to help them through this crisis. Any amount makes a difference, even a bag of beans or a few candles. Deb loves these people and will use every penny you can give to directly help those who need it most.

I talked with Ever Potoy today about his lovely community of Los Ramos on Ometepe Island. Because of 5-6 landslides, their community was destroyed. I am sick with worry for this community and I want to help them rebuild.

“Ever, what can we do to help?” I asked.

“We need candles and food,” he responded while on his motorcycle going to get some supplies.

That’s just like these humble, hardworking people to respond with such simple needs.

So, if you can find it within your loving hearts…let’s buy these people lots of candles and food within the next two weeks. Thanks for your help!

    This is such a tragedy, Kris. It must be doubly sad for you and Joel since you’ve been there so recently. How can we donate and who can we send money to? Have you considered doing a posting on Boquete Ning or the other forums?

    • Go to the link in the post – Help Los Ramos Rebuild. http://www.youcaring.com/help-a-neighbor/help-los-ramos-rebuild/248011 Joel just posted on Boquete Ning this morning and I asked Chiriqui Chatter if he would post it too, since that blog has lots of traffic.
      Yes, it breaks my heart because I feel like so many of those people are friends. The gal who taught me to make the nacatamles for example, her husband lost all his land and cattle and she said the whole island is crying for the child who died. It’s going to take them a long time to rebuild and replant.
      Thanks so much for wanting to help!! Thanks for the ideas too. We’ll get the word out as far and wide as we can. Thanks 🙂
