Tamarindo Talk

October 8, 2010

The nonprofit CEPIA is seeking housing for one of its workers whose home has been jeopardized by the high waters of the Huacas River. Claudia Rodríguez and her two children, one of whom is handicapped, live in a house that is dangerously close to the rising waters of the Huacas River, and she is looking for a small house or cabin to rent for a few months. Normally, this is the type of project CEPIA would fund, but the group does not have the money for this right now and is asking for help. Anyone able to contribute money or a place for Claudia and her family may contact CEPIA’s Laetitia Deweer at 8301-8282 or cepiacostarica@racsa.co.cr.
