On September 19, Hurricane Fiona made landfall in the Dominican Republic. The storms associated with Fiona caused flooding, damage to buildings and roads, power outages, and an interruption to water service.
We have mostly good news out of our home in the DR. All of the pequenos and staff are safe!
NPH-DR did, however, sustain significant damage to their greenhouse. The greenhouse is used to grow vegetables, which are an important source of food for the children. Many fruit trees (also an important source of food for the children) were lost. And the home is currently without power. As of September 20, they are waiting on electric company personnel to repair lines that were damaged as a result of heavy winds and rain.
NPH-DR could use our help. Funds generated by way of this fundraiser will be sent directly to NPH-DR. They will be used to address immediate safety and wellness concerns.
