Tele marathon for donations towards victims of floods on the north coast
Thursday evening Lic. Fabio Garcia from the popular program Detras del Rumor started a Tele Marathon on the local TV station. The program, which lasted two hours, invited viewers to donate (goods and money) for the flood victims on the north coast, caused by the heavy rains in the past three weeks. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed.
Over 200 homes have been swept away by the water flow, and bridges, and roads have been destructed. The farmlands were submerged for weeks causing many crops to rot, so the harvest can be considered a failure. From everywhere viewers offered money and supplies like blankets, mattresses, and food during the Tele Marathon program.
Also organizations like the Samaritan Foundation and the ISLA Academy are actively helping the victims in Sosúa and surroundings. They also call on everyone to help with a donation.
