SalvAide Emergency Solidarity Appeal
Severe Flooding in El Salvador


To date:

Thousands evacuated
Hundreds more stranded
Dozens killed

SalvAide partners CRIPDES and CORDES are present in the affected areas:Torrential rains over the last few days in El Salvador have devastated coastal areas with heavy flooding and mudslides (click here for BBC coverage).  Poor hydroelectric dam management has only exacerbated the crisis.  SalvAide's Salvadoran sister organizations, CRIPDES and CORDES, are on the ground and mobilizing relief efforts in the most affected flood zone - El Salvador's Lower Lempa River region (Bajo Lempa).  With more than two decades of experience in grassroots community organizing and development in the Bajo Lempa, SalvAide's sister organizations have been quick to respond with:

  • evacuation and emergency shelter
  • food and basic health needs
  • rescue and further disaster mitigation


We need your support!

The need remains great and urgent care is still needed.  The best way to help is with a tax-deductible donation that SalvAide can channel to our partners on the ground as soon as possible to purchase emergency supplies and to fund relief efforts.
