Food for the Poor: A Force for Good in Honduras

by | Nov 27, 2020 | Blog

On November 21, Aerial Recovery Group deployed a team of volunteers to San Pedro Sula for a 9 day mission to help with emergency aid and relief efforts following Honduras’ worst natural disaster in more than 20 years. Hurricanes Eta and Iota hit the area only days after each other, leaving many small towns in need of aid still completely cut off from support due to treacherous water levels. With homes washed away from floods, no electricity due to wind damage and infrastructure severely damaged, thousands of residents are left with little to no basic necessities such as food, clothing, toiletries and fresh water.

In order to provide the critical help that the country of Honduras needs, Aerial Recovery Group has partnered with organizations on the ground to team up and meet the needs of as many people as possible. 

For this volunteer mission, we are proud to be working alongside Food For The Poor. Food for the Poor is a Christian based ministry that has been impacting lives by assisting in aid of residents in the Caribbean and Latin America since 1982. Through the help of donors, they have been able to provide food, housing, healthcare, education, fresh water and emergency relief for impoverished families totaling more than 15.7 billion dollars. Food for the Poor has already sent down more than 90 containers of aid to Central America, including multiple pallets of food, face masks, cleaning wipes, disaster blankets, tarps, portable stoves and bandages. 

This week, the Aerial Recovery Group Volunteer Corps met with the team at the Cepudo Foundation, the organization that oversees all of Food For The Poor’s projects in Honduras, and much of the distribution of goods sent by Food for the Poor. Working alongside Linda Coella, president of the Cepudo Foundation, our team was provided with critical supplies to hand deliver to the residents of Honduras, and in return, Aerial Recovery Group handled the strategic planning and mapping process for how to traverse the dangerous countryside, most of which is still under water. Through these joint efforts, the Volunteer Corp was able to reach 290 families by boat – and were the first team to be able to reach this community and provide emergency relief they desperately needed
