Signal boost: please help the folks in El Salvador

An alumna of Brebeuf (where I teach) is in El Salvador for a year on a Fulbright scholarship. Heavy rains on Nov. 7 created landslides and contaminated water supplies for one of the small rural communities she's been researching in. At this point, she and a few friends have been delivering handfuls of rice and beans and containers of fresh water to folks. The roads to larger communities are mostly out and the military, Red Cross, etc. are not helping. http://friendsofsantamaria.blogspot.com Please read, please help, please pass this on. As with most natural disasters, the poorest are hit hardest. Mudslides have killed people in this community and washed away houses. Please send thoughts and prayers if nothing else. Thank you all!!
