Aftermath of Hurricane Felix 

Hello Judith,
Hope everything is fine with you.
I went back to Nicaragua to do some work on the Atlantic Cost, Father Melesio and I stayed at Puerto Cabezas. We traveled everyday to the community of Santa Marta where we are building 10 houses.


We also visited the community of Sagni Laya where we delivered five of the blankets. We decided to go directly and give five of the blankets to families that have small babies, and are severly affected by hurricane Felix which had struck in September.
Father Melesio is delivering the rest of the blankets in Santa Marta, another community on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua where nearly all of the resident's homes had been completely destroyed.
Judith, this was my first visit to the Atlantic Coast and I was so sad to see how people are having to survive in such poor, miserable conditions. I'm still trying to make the mental change after I returned to here. I really want to keep helping these people.  Most of them speak spanish but in Sagni Laya was difficult because most the woman and children speak mainly/only miskito.Thank you for all your support.

With love,

Casta
