Richland Center - Santa Teresa
Sister City Project

SPECIAL APPEAL, November 2020

The torrential rains that accompanied Hurricane Iota brought floods and disaster to Santa Teresa’s Chacocente Wildlife Refuge villages. Homes were destroyed, crops damaged, and roads obliterated. In three communities along the Escalante River, 78 homes were badly damaged. A mother and four children in one village lost their lives when they were carried away in a raging river. There is immediate need for food, water, shelter, mattresses, bed linens, and kitchen utensils.
