Honduras After the Storm: Cepudo Foundation Rescue Training

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,...

Honduras After the Storm: Why Your Donations Matter

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...

Partner Spotlight: Global Empowerment Mission

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,...

Honduras Stronger: First Responder Training

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...
