Transcript el Salvador relief effort A young girl injured during the earthquake waits to be examined in a tent set up as a temporary hospital in the town of Lapaz Zacatecoluca. Photo by Walter Coreas death and destruction Two UH students look, for hope, as they visit El Salvador after a, devastating earthauaJce< On Jan. 13 a devastating earthquake, with a magnitude of almost 8.0, rocked the country of El Salvador. The earthquake hit just off the Salvadoran coast, but caused much damage to the surrounding towns. Two students from the University of Houston, Tom Carpenter and Walter Coreas. journeyed to El Salvador months after the earthquake, and what they saw tugged at their heart strings. Many of the towns, such as Santa Tecla were completely leveled. Homes and buildings that once made up a bustling town were now reduced to rubble. The people were living in tents that bad been set up on soccer fields. What upset Carpenter and Coreas was th(! fact that the government was doing very little to help the people. It seems that most of the people in Santa Tecla, and neighboring towns, did not support the current party in office. So, the government has been slow to offer aid and assistance. At one point the government did bring food to the town with the press in tow. After the food was delivered and the government and press had left it was discovered that the food was rotten. It has not been an easy road for the people of Santa Tecla, Santa Elena, Candaleria, San Ramon and the other towns. They live in "temporary" camps for months, with no sign of aid from the government. The few that still have homes are afraid to enter them with all the aftershocks and the second earthquake that hit not too long after the first. Everyone shares what little they have with their neighbors, for each understands what the other is enduring. Food is scarce, along with medicine and other necessities that most people take for granted. The people of these towns have lost family, friends homes and the lives that they were use to. They have lost everything. All they ask for is a helping hand and a little prayer. -Linda Canales A volunteer doctor in the town of Sam Ramon examines a patient injured during the earthquake.
