Our affiliate base in Ilopango took part in rescue efforts together with National Firefighters in the La Palma neighborhood of San Martin to save a premature baby who had been born after a young mother gave birth for unknown reasons in an outhouse. The neonate was quickly cleaned and stabilized and transported to San Bartolo hospital.
Veteran CDS Volunter Carlos Fuente was sent from the Central Base to Jiquilisqo Bajo Lempa to teach swift water rescue techniques to 20 delegate members of San Marcos and Bajo Lempa. Every fall, dams release built up water levels flooding communities below them.
