Since this last Thursday night, more than 100 of our volunteers have been currently recovering victims from a landslide that covered homes in Nejapa north of San Salvador in the neighborhoods of Los Angelitos 1 and 2 . 9 bodies have so far been recovered of around 30 that are missing. We are working side by side with family members, Red Cross, National Firefighters in coordination with the National Response Emergency System .
Families affected have been sheltered in the polideportivo and also local churches . Donations acquired by CDS are being coordinated by our staff in order to bring clothes, food, and disposable diapers for babies.
Comandos will continue over the next days to continue searching for the missing.
Please donate to our cause on the left side of this post through our gofundme.
