The Aftermath of Hurricane Isaias
August 14th, 2020
Intersections is partnering with churches in the Dominican Republic to feed families struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaias, which brought destructive flooding during the first week of August.
Up to twenty-five hurricanes are projected to hit the Atlantic region in 2020. Combined with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the long-term impacts on Caribbean nations could be devastating. Intersections is committed to support recovery efforts, and we're asking for your help to do it. We're starting by partnering with two Catholic churches overseeing relief in the heavily flood-damaged Hato Mayor province in the Dominican Republic. Under the leadership of Pastor Ramón Antonio Santana Castillo, San José Obrero and Santísimo Sacramento are providing services to over 200 families who have been forced to relocate to emergency shelters following Hurricane Isaias.
A donation of just $57 will provide a family with food for two weeks - and we're matching all donations up to $5,000.
