Gary LeBlanc of Mercy Chefs -- Grassfire's disaster relief partner -- sent me a disturbing message (below) about the conditions in Honduras.
The people there need our help. I'm hoping the Grassfire team will band together to help sponsor at least 10,000 meals over this holiday weekend. Your tax-deductible gift of $50 will help feed FIVE families of four for FIVE DAYS; $100 will help feed TEN FAMILIES. Go here to make a tax-deductible gift to help Hurricane victims in Honduras, and see below for more details from Gary.

The devastation brought on by Iota across Honduras is tragic.
By all accounts, the flooding was worse from this storm than from Eta which hit just a few weeks ago. Dozens have perished and thousands upon thousands are facing a struggle just to survive. Many have lost their homes and belongings, and are now engaged in a daily battle just to survive with no reliable access to food or drinking water.
Mercy Chefs continues to work in hard-hit Comayagua with our partner churches who are providing Family Survival Meal Packs as well as thousands of gallons of drinking water through our water purification units. We have been asked by a local mayor and a pastor to provide meals at two area shelters for those who have sought refuge in these facilities. Mercy Chefs is sending the resources to help provide the food and other supplies needed, including medicine and diapers.
My heart is breaking for these people. This is one of the worst disasters we have seen, and for many, Mercy Chefs and our partners on the ground are the only relief efforts that have reached these people. We are sending more personnel to Honduras next week, including one of our chefs who will be overseeing the meal preparation efforts. But right now we need to help meet the absolutely critical needs of food and fresh water.
Can you help? We depend on the generosity and support of friends like you for every meal and every gallon of fresh drinking water we are helping to provide to hurricane victims in Honduras.
Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support on behalf of these hurting people.
May God bless you,
Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
