Volunteers Needed for Flood Relief Efforts

Local non-profit PEACE is organizing volunteers to lend a helping hand to the rain ravaged communities in the Banderas Bay region. Click HERE to learn how you can help. (photos by Nikhol Esterás Roberts)
Many villages throughout the Bay of Banderas have experienced weeks of torrential rains, resulting in flooding and the loss of homes for some families as well as severe damage to many homes, businesses, schools, roads and community centers.

Flooding has washed out bridges connecting some towns to Highway 200 and has caused massive mud slides, thus limiting the transportation of much needed supplies. As a response to these events, PEACE has stepped forward to organize volunteers and lend a helping hand.

Join us on Friday, September 17, 2010 at 9:30 am to help with the flood relief efforts in Higuera Blanca, Guamuchil & San Ignacio. According to the amount of people we receive, we will split teams up to the different areas.

Those interested should meet Friday morning at Casa Campesina, PEACE headquarters in Punta de Mita. (Heading north on the Punta de Mita highway, pass the crucero to Litibu/Higuera Blanca and make a left at the first street. There is a large school on the corner and the street is new. We are located in the plaza at the end of the street.)

Please bring garbage bags, shovels, gloves and anything that could help in the clean up process.

Together with local community groups, individuals, NGO's and businesses, PEACE is also helping to get much needed supplies to the affected communities in the north. Donations of food and clothing are being collected at locations around the bay through September 19th. Click HERE to learn more.

If you would like to be part of this community effort, please contact Nicole Majewski at nicole(at)peacemexico.org or 322-182-3185 to learn how you can help.
PEACE: Protection, Education, Animals, Culture and Environment, is a nonprofit organization established in 2005, made of four main programs which focus on education, entrepreneurship, animal well-being, and community engagement in the coastal regions of Nayarit, Jalisco and Quintana Roo, Mexico. Through innovative and community based programs, PEACE is working to improve the quality of life in local communities throughout the Bahía de Banderas.
