Paraguay had a devastating flood that by some accounts displaced more than 300,000 people. While Paraguay experiences floods almost every year this was one of the worst in history. KPP member Ceci Martinez initiated a fund raising effort among Kansas-Paraguay supporters that resulted in raising substantial funds. Here is her report with some photos.
These are the results of our Bañado Sur campaign:
* We got two fifty-pound suitcases full of winter clothes. One went to Bañado Sur and the other to Bañado Tacumbú.
* A first total cash donation of $850.00 used to buy 82 blankets
* A second total cash donation of $330.00 that will be used to buy nonperishable food.
Thank you so very much to all of those who supported this effort especially toKansas Paraguay Partners for receiving the money donations.
As you see in the pictures, there is still a long way to go. Please, please, please support other efforts to help people who are still unable to go back to their homes.
