Nashville, November 19, 2020 — Aerial Recovery Group, a global emergency management firm, will be headed down to Honduras to assist the country in their emergency aid and relief efforts after back-to-back devastation from Hurricanes Eta and Iota. A group of volunteers will visit the hard-hit communities of San Pedro Sula and the surrounding areas for a 9 day recon mission from November 21-29 where they deliver critical supplies such as food and basic essentials, as well as partnering with Watts of Love to give out solar lights to those in need. The team will also work alongside Food for the Poor as they deliver containers of aid including critical necessities such as food, hygiene products, clothes and first aid, capturing live footage of their relief efforts and general video coverage of the situation on the ground in order to bring much needed awareness and additional aid to the dire situation in Honduras.
“It’s absolutely heartbreaking to see the devastation caused by Hurricane Eta. More than two million people lost everything, and many had no food or water for days and were waiting on their rooftops to be rescued. For the country to be hit again so soon with Hurricane Iota is beyond words,” said Britnie Turner, Founder & CEO of Aerial Recovery Group. “Aerial Recovery Group is jumping into action to help the people of Honduras. It’s not only critical to get down there to provide emergency relief - but also to share the stories of what’s really happening on the ground so the country can get the vital help it needs.”
During the active 2020 hurricane season, Aerial Recovery Group also deployed three times to Southwest Louisiana and assisted in critical volunteer efforts including:
Debris removal and emergency cleanup at community centers to provide faster relief for residents, including the Big Brother Big Sister House of Southwest Louisiana, the Family & Youth Counseling Center in Lake Charles and the Oasis Women’s Shelter
Assisted in emergency response efforts for more than 30 properties across Lake Charles, North Lake Charles, Cameron and Sulphur so residents could have shelter, including clearing debris, chopping trees, fixing home lots, and tarping roofs
Liaised bringing in non-profit organization Watts of Love to deliver more than 600 solar lights to residents of North Lake Charles and Cameron
Worked with Gophr, a local app delivery service, to set up a distribution center in their headquarters in downtown Lake Charles to provide critical supplies to local residents, including hot meals, water, hygiene products, diapers and bathroom supplies as well as to house 100s of volunteers over the following weeks and months
Hand-delivered thousands of pounds of supplies to affected residents gathered from donations from volunteers across the country
