Salvadorans Helping Salvadorans


San Miguelito, a neighborhood just north of down down San Salvador is known for its local Market. Anything can be bought there, from fresh flowers, piñatas, bridal dresses to fish or poultry. The female workers of the San Miguelito Market have shown their solidarity with the people of El Salvador in helping victims of Tropical Storm Agatha. They have gathered their resources and made fresh food for those affected in Puerto Parada. The sellers asked Comandos de Salvamento to help transport the food to shelters while they themselves handed it out. The invaluable labor and collaboration of the San Miguelito Market workers took place over the course of two day trips and they promise to be ready for future emergencies this year by bringing hot food to families in need.  During the event, children had the opportunity to break open two piñatas in order to bring happiness to the community.  Comandos de Salvamento wants to formally salute and thank the workers of the Mercado de San Miguelito for their availability and kindness. CDS will be ever ready with transport vehicles to help  when the need arises.
