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...

The Aftermath of Hurricanes Eta & Iota

The level of devastation the Aerial Recovery Group’s Volunteer Corps are seeing in Honduras is heart wrenching. The country is experiencing unprecedented and dangerous flooding, with whole communities knee deep in water. Homes have been completely wiped out, people are living under tarps, and villages are under water. A large population of farmers have lost all of their land, except for the few livestock who were able to escape the flooding. 

San Pedro Sula - the country’s economic center and home to 2 million people - has been the hardest hit area in the nation. About 2,235,000 people were impacted by these record setting storms. Flooding and winds damaged roads, bridges, communication infrastructure, and are creating dangerous mudslides. While en route to San Pedro Sula, the Aerial Volunteer Corps witnessed many families living on the side of the road in homemade tents because their homes had been washed away. The devastation from Hurricanes Eta and Iota has left...

Here are a few ways you can prepare your business for a faster recovery after a hurricane strike.

1. Check On Your Insurance Policy

There are several types of insurance policies that can support a business. Unfortunately, there is no specific “hurricane” policy. There are, however, business interruption policies, flood insurance, and windstorm insurance. Look carefully over your plan. Some insurance policies have exclusions related to hurricanes. You need to know what will be covered so you can plan. 

2. Protect Your Physical Location

There are ways to minimize the damage by being proactive in preparedness. The five steps from our article on how to Protect Your Home can also be...
