The director stressed the importance of the shipment, made at the express indication of the Nicaraguan president, Daniel Ortega, in response to the serious damage suffered in El Rama, where, in addition to strong winds and rains, they faced flooding in almost 80 percent of its Urban area.
González stressed that a team of technicians travels to that place, located in the Autonomous Region of the South Caribbean Coast, to assess the damage after the floods and continue strengthening the surveillance and early warning system.
“As the Vice President (Rosario Murillo) frequently points out, we must continue to learn from these phenomena, the specificity of these phenomena, so that our protocols are increasingly more specific, more concrete and guarantee that families manage to take shelter,” highlighted the Sandinista leader.
The previous week, the Government sent food for nearly 6,000 families, as well as supplies (mats, hammocks and construction components) and brigades to restore the energy and communications systems, which have already been restored.
“Brigades have been sent to support psychosocial care, we are working on the issue of cleaning with a stock of equipment so that the cleaning process is done as quickly as possible and avoid any epidemic,” he assured.
Testolin, for his part, expressed his solidarity with Nicaragua and especially with the families affected by Hurricane Julia.
