Thanks to the hundreds of benefactors from all over the world over $90,000 dollars was raised for hurricane relief for Todos Santos, through GoFundMe http://www.gofundme.com/eskrns, and ICF www.icfdn.org, in addition to all ticket sales from the Todos Santos Music Festival.
Donations continue to come in for Hurricane relief and, although the main part of our relief program has come to an end, we continue to accept these donations which will be used for relief programs in the local ranches and surrounding areas as needed. We are proud that we were able to field three teams of workers, six days a week during the last three months.
Each application for aid was assessed, the need evaluated, and confirmed after completion. Through these three months over 200 lamina (metal) roofs were constructed that had been blown away in Hurricane Odile providing safe living spaces for these families.
In addition 10 complete shelters were constructed for people who had lost entire homes. Hundreds of boxes and bags of food were delivered both locally and to the sierras, families were aided in replacing clothing, kitchen appliances and household items blown away in the Hurricane, and 30,000 was donated to the Hogar de Ninos to rebuild one of their shelters.
100 percent of the donations that were received were used to pay for the relief efforts, and we thank every one of you who were part of this team to bring relief to the people of Todos Santos. We appreciate the continued support of donations and we thank you all for believing in us!
