People making a difference

Here are links to three recent stories about efforts which are making a difference in the lives of the Salvadoran people:

  • 1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005 is highlighting the efforts of women working in countries all over the globe. Six women from El Salvador are featured: Guadalupe Mejía Delgado, María Esperanza Ortega, María Eugenia Aguilar Castro, María Julia Hernández Chavarría, Marta Benavides, Victoria Marina Velásquez de Avilés. Go to the web site www.1000peacewomen.org to read short biographies of these courageous women.

  • A program for US farmers to provide assistance to Salvadoran farmers with techniques and methods for effective agriculture.

  • A Massachusetts eye doctor who leads a delegation of medical specialists each year to provide examinations and treatment for eye conditions to poor people living in rural El Salvador.
