We'd like to give a massive thanks to the support of our amazing network, in under 72 hours we raised $3200 for the community in Astillero affected by storms and flooding from tropical Storm Nate! With this money, our team members Federico Spagnuoli and Manuel Cortez have been working around the clock with the Renato, Lance (Surfari Charters Nicaragua ), Astillero Surf Club and other wonderful community members to provide emergency goods to those who need it.
This money has so far been spent providing over 200 bags of rice, beans, sugar, salt, toiletries and other essential needs. As well as mattresses for those without shelter. In collaboration with Surfari Charters, we got one bag to every house in Astillero.
We will join forces with the Astillero Surf Club to continue to help the most affected areas, planning with Olinyer so that we can provide the best support to those that need it most.
A special thanks to Isaac and the team at unplugged trip who donated to our cause and helped us to buy and transport these supplies down the coast. The situation is already getting better, as more food, water, and resources have been coming into the community slowly, and want to thank you again for helping us help Astillero!
