For the first time...
Aerial Recovery Group believes that by improving living standards and creating better infrastructure and response systems in regions affected by natural disasters, you can help break the cycle of poverty and help nations recover even stronger than before. To allow for maximum preparedness, our team of highly trained experts and former military special forces provides the necessary training, resiliency planning and global best practices for local disaster management teams so they have a template for recovery, rebuilding and revitalization - a true game changer for these affected nations.
One of the main goals for this second mission was to provide swift water training to first responders in Honduras to better prepare them for rescue operations during disasters with massive amounts of flooding like after Hurricanes Eta & Iota. The team conducted training with members of the Cepudo Foundation on the Chamelecon River. This river caused major damage after the November hurricanes,...
During our first mission, Honduras was massively flooded from the hurricanes. It rained nearly everyday after the second hurricane and all through our mission, leaving entire villages under water. Now, the flood waters have receded so the true damage can be seen. Homes are all but destroyed, entire villages have been washed away, and thousands of people are displaced, some living on the side of the roads with nowhere to go.
One critical thing to understand about Honduras is that it was an impoverished third world country before the storms. These hurricanes devastated an already devastated nation. And while the airports have reopened and the industries have started back up, it's not enough yet to make true progress.
People are still in need of clothing, clean water and food. The local charities have been working overtime to fill the needs in their communities, but as quickly as aid comes in, it's gone within a day or two, and doesn't come close to reaching everybody who...
While the news cycle may end and focus shifts to other things in the world, life still goes on in the destruction zones for the tens of thousands of people affected by natural disasters. Residents of Honduras have been without proper living shelters and without basic daily supplies like food and fresh water for months. Help shouldn’t stop just because the news cycle has. That’s why we are so thankful for our partners who make Aerial Recovery Group’s mission possible and allow for us to continue to send our Volunteer Corps to help aid Honduras in their time of need.
Global Empowerment Mission is an organization dedicated to restoring hope and opportunity to those most affected by natural disasters. GEM has been working nonstop since November to gather critical aid and supplies for Honduras. Through our partnership with GEM, Aerial’s Volunteer Corps are able to hand-deliver these supplies on the ground in Honduras. GEM manages collecting all donations,...
Aerial Recovery Group touched down in Honduras on January 30 for their second mission after the devastation caused by Hurricanes Eta & Iota in November left tens of thousands of people displaced and without critical supplies and basic necessities like food, clean water and proper shelter. Aerial’s promise is to be with nations through all five phases of recovery - resiliency planning, first response, emergency relief, recovery management, and innovative redevelopment. This five phase disaster management plan provides not only emergency aid immediately after the storm but critical training and roadmaps for economic opportunities so communities can rebuild quickly.
According to Amnesty International, the two hurricanes left at least 94 dead affecting almost 4 million people across the nation, and analysts say they could cause the level of poverty to rise by 10%, surpassing 70% of the population. Many governments in disaster-prone areas are already understaffed...

NASHVILLE, JANUARY 26, 2021 — Aerial Recovery Group, a global emergency management firm, will be headed down to Honduras for its second mission trip to assist the country in their emergency aid and relief efforts after back-to-back devastation from Hurricanes Eta and Iota in November. The Aerial Volunteer Corps will visit the hard-hit communities of San Pedro Sula and the surrounding areas for a 9 day mission from January 31 through February 7, working on two projects while on the ground:
Aerial Recovery Group wrapped up their first mission to Honduras last week, and our Volunteer Corps came back forever changed. In order to understand the full scope of what Honduras is facing, we wanted you to hear the powerful and impactful stories directly from them.
Jeremy Locke, Aerial Recovery Group:
“Many people in Honduras live well below the poverty line, and in the aftermath of Eta and Iota, and unfortunately people lost everything due to the massive flooding. Entire villages are underwater and residents were forced to move to higher ground. What most don’t know is that it rained nearly everyday for a month which created even more devastation. Millions of people are displaced. Most of the crops for next season are destroyed. Famine and disease will soon set in and on top of that, COVID 19 is beginning to run out of control, slamming the already overloaded health care facilities. Groups like Aerial Recovery Group and Cepudo Foundation are exhausting all...
The Aerial Recovery Volunteer Corps has been in Honduras for the past 9 days and just closed out their first recon mission to the area. It’s been eye-opening to see the extent of the damage on the ground and how many people have been left with nothing. There is a long road ahead for the country, between rebuilding and revitalizing the nation and the economic repercussions that natural disasters bring. The most pressing issue remains providing shelter, fresh water, food and basic necessities for thousands who have been displaced. It's been three weeks since Hurricane Eta first made landfall, and there are still hundreds of people who have not been reached and are still without any aid.
Over the course of the past week, our team has bravely provided critical relief and emergency aid to hundreds of people throughout San Pedro Sula and the surrounding communities, despite treacherous conditions and massive flooding making these efforts nearly impossible. The team was able...
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...
