Francisco Ramirez, Don Chery, Charlotte Carroll, L Garcia
In 1966, LATN through CoCoDA began organizing and sending delegations of RRUUC Youth and adults to Santa Marta. From a focus on education, over 50 university graduates are working throughout El Salvador. From these delegation contacts, a special RRUUC/LATN relationship has developed with the Salvadoran refugee community in the Washington DC area. COSTA, an association of 17 Salvadoran hometown associations, has, since 2015, sent more than $350 thousand back to their communities in El Salvador to build schools, clinics, pay teachers\\' salaries and aid in other development projects. Come hear about this remarkable journey!
