The aftermath: picking up the pieces   3 comments

This sight brings tears to your eyes. This is the aftermath. We're living it. Farmers wading in waist-high water trying to salvage their crops. Families drying maize and beans on roofs, the roadside, anywhere, to salvage what they can.

  1. heartbreaking. please donate today! there is much long term need.

  2. I’m going to be in San Salvador for a week or so starting next week. Prior to relocating permanently in January. Would love to be part of the rehabilitation/recovery effort. Would you be able to direct me to any charities that could use me over the weekend for any work they’re doing?

    Me and my wife are terribly excited to move to this part of the world and we’d love to be able to be a part of the recovery effort.


    • Hi Sagarr, I will see if any of my friends know of a place you can volunteer. We had donation centers open for people who were in shelters, you may be able to help there if they are still accepting donations. I’ll check around and let you know, meantime, stay in touch with me at
