Hurricane Iota is now considered the strongest storm to hit Nicaragua in the country's history!
World Missions Outreach is raising money to help those who have been affected by the devastation of Hurricane Eta and Iota in Nicaragua.
Giving Tuesday is a day where the global community comes together to make a difference. Today isn’t just about raising money. Today is about restoring hope in children so that they can have the future they want.
100% of all donations go directly to the intended purpose of helping those most in need. Every donation creates opportunities for education, provides nutritious meals, strengthens their faith, and enables children to break the cycle of poverty for their family and for future generations to come.
Right now it is even more imperative for World Missions Outreach to raise funding because of the current natural disaster crisis that hit Central America.
Nicaragua has been hit by two Category 4 hurricanes back to back within two weeks. Iota is responsible for 19 deaths in Nicaragua and hundreds injured. Both hurricanes have Left over 60,000 people without homes, shelter, food, or water.
Iota arrived Monday evening with winds of 155 mph, hitting nearly the same location as Hurricane Eta had two weeks earlier. Early Wednesday, Iota had dissipated over El Salvador, but the storm's torrential rains remained a threat for all of Nicaragua.
This rainfall is leading to catastrophic, life-threatening flash flooding, river flooding, and landslides.
The immediate concern is helping people in Nicaragua with food, water, shelter, and other essential needs during this time.
Rural communities in Nicaragua are extremely susceptible to mudslides and flash flooding. The storm pulled roofs off houses, took down trees and power lines, and is causing flooding in Puerto Cabezas, a city in one of Nicaragua's poorest regions,
The storm could deliver life-threatening conditions in Nicaragua and other Central American nations for days, including more than 3 feet of rain in parts of Nicaragua.
Iota hit Nicaragua at a time when these communities are already reeling from the pandemic and Hurricane Eta. The International Monetary Fund predicts a 5.5 percent contraction of the Nicaraguan economy this year. 2020 marks the third straight year of an economic downturn after a mass protest movement almost collapsed the countries economy entirely.
Many families are devastated by the tragic loss of literally everything they own but are thankful that they are still able to live another day.
We are asking everyone to please help World Missions Outreach raise the funding needed to supply the needs for Nicaragua's hardest-hit communities. Nicaragua needs all of our help to rebuild and supply the needs of those affected.
