Habitat El Salvador and California’s Town Hall will change 25 roofs of the families that were affected by Tropical Storm Amanda
October 2nd, 2020. The organization Habitat El Salvador will work alongside California’s Town Hall in order to help 25 families from the municipality of California, that were most impacted by Tropical Storm Amanda, on the construction of new roofs for their homes.
“As part of our humanitarian response, today we have signed a covenant to help 25 families that were affected by Amanda. These roof changes will be carried out in the hope of improving the safety against the inclement weather, and that cleaning and hygiene conditions due to Covid-19 are much more feasible “, confirmed Beatriz Bejarano, Operation Manager of Habitat El Salvador.
“We thank Habitat El Salvador for working together on this opportunity, so that 25 families of Monseñor Romero y Claros communities, in the municipality of California, can have the best conditions for their homes. As local government, we search for entities that allow us to do negotiations to help more Usulutecan families” commented Mr. Gustavo Aguirre, Town Hall Mayor. The investment for this intervention is $15,000; Habitat El Salvador and California’s Town Hall will contribute with 50% of the total investment. As part of the project, the 25 families will receive Financial and Risk Management education. The project will end in December of the current year.
