Liberty Rotary Seeking Help For Hurricane Eta & Iota Victims

There is an immediate need for supplies to get to families affected by Hurricanes Eta and Iota in Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. Representatives from the Liberty NY Rotary Club, Operation Endeavor, the Belize Sunrise Rotary Club and The Belize Rotary Club met on zoom recently as a result of being contacted by the Executive Director of the Belize Emergency Response Team requesting disaster relief assistance. We have been able to identify needs as described by those with boots on the ground in Belize. Those needs include DONATIONS to purchase food, hygiene and domestic supplies for hurricane-stricken families as wells as to provide disaster preparedness and basic first aid training necessary to educate stakeholders and build resilience for future disasters.

PUERTO RICO (PR) DISASTER RELIEF

On January 7 there was an earthquake, magnitude 6.4 followed by another 6.0 tremor, which impacted the southwest coast of Puerto Rico. As a result, a number of houses collapsed and buildings and other structures have been structurally compromised. Currently there are 30-40 seismic activities every day in the southwest coast of the island. ranging from 2.4 – 5.4 in intensity.  Many people are living in fear as the ground shakes daily.  Some are afraid to sleep in their homes fearing that the next earthquake could be catastrophic. The situation is causing economic, social and emotional issues    for a number of the people in those communities.

After Hurricane Maria, the Liberty, NY Rotary Club developed a network of Rotarians from Puerto Rico, Massachusetts and New York to provide assistance to the Moca, Puerto Rico, area which was devastated by the hurricane, and together we are working with the leadership Puerto Rico’s District 7000 to respond to this latest crisis.

Through the Liberty NY Rotary Club Foundation Fund at CFOS, donations are being  securely collected and distributed directly to assist the people of Puerto Rico during this frightening time.  Please consider donating to our fellow citizens, brothers and sisters – no donation is too large or too small – through one of the options below.
