The community of Palo Solo was affected earlier this month by the heavy rains, which have damaged the infrastructure in the community. Many families in this community have lost what little they had.
Roads and houses have been heavily damaged. The single road to the community is surrounded by dirt walls and thick jungle on both sides and is highly vulnerable to heavy rains. Houses, mostly near large declines, have also been damaged. The video below is a report from a local news channel on a recent disaster and how it left nearly 20 families from Palo Solo and another village nearby - also part of Las Conchas - without homes. The families had to be evacuated.
We will provide another report on the mudslides and the impact the heavy rains have had on the community. Donations for the Palo Solo Project go to education and other basic necessities. During these difficult times, families are in dire need of food such as rice, oil, sugar, red beans, and other necessities.
