Nicaragua floods, November 2020

Nicaragua has recently been battered by two hurricanes in rapid succession. Hurricane Eta caused extensive damage along the Caribbean coast before inflicting far greater damage on Gautemala. Hurricane Iota hit the already-saturated land causing mudslides, flooding and extensive damage to central Nicaragua including the communities we support in Teustepe. We received this update from Olivia Lekel from our partner CEPAD.

Gilberto Aguirre (El Profe) — Presenté

“On 18th June we received the desperately sad news that our good friend, partner and inspiration Gilberto Aguirre (El Profe), had passed away. He had been rushed into hospital for emergency throat cancer surgery in the middle of May and unfortunately, complications arose after this.” Garth Hewitt writes of the life of Gilberto Aguirre from CEPAD in Nicaragua.

A Sense of Hopefulness

“In what seems like a whole lifetime away now, a group of nineteen of us travelled to Nicaragua to catch up with some of the communities that Amos has been supporting these past 5 years through the work of our partner CEPAD. Some of us had been before and had seen what life was like at the start of their 5-year programme and then 3 years in — and others were new to the country.” Caroline Bone writes.

Once In A Lifetime

Yesterday I phoned Croydon Council and asked if they’d declared a climate emergency. “I’m sorry,” said the frontline receptionist, “I’m not sure who you would need to speak to about that.” Joanna Bega, CEO of Child Rescue Nepal reports on Amos Trust and A Rocha UK’s first ever Climate Justice Summit in Cambridge in September.
