In collaboration with generous individual donors, Latina Republic has partnered with island leaders, local government and CORDES to identify and provide support for 3 island communities off the coast of El Salvador: San Sebastian, La Pirraya and Rancho Viejo Islands. The islands are home to 3 fishing communities that moved from the mainland to the islands during El Salvador’s civil war seeking a safe space to rebuild their lives. Living off, primarily, from fishing poses some challenges. The winter storms that begin in May, flood the island, swamping the dirt roads and flooding their homes. They are unable to fish and sell their catch. The islands are home to a large number of children and senior population. The most urgent need, in particular for seniors, and for residents who suffered accidents making them unable to fish, is food. The 3 islands are also facing a number of development needs, including urgency for latrines, potable water, and alternative food production. They cannot grow vegetables on the ground due to torrential storms and flooding. Despite El Salvador’s worsening economic situation, members of this island community have remained self-sustaining, resilient and most of all caring even amidst two hurricanes and most recently, the pandemic, which has deeply affected them, by isolating them from the market, where they sell their fish. Any help you can provide is deeply appreciated. 100% of the donations go to supporting food deliveries to Seniors, the differently abled community, or projects the island needs, depending on what the donor chooses to support.
