Hurricane Iota and Colombia: How You Can Help the Thousands of People Affected

Please visit www.solidaridadporcolombia.org to donate today. We thank you.



On November 15 – 16, Hurricane Iota hit the Colombian Archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina as a Category 5 storm, it’s eye missing Providencia by just 11 miles.


According to Colombian President Iván Duque, the damage is “unprecedented.” Ninety-eight (98) percent of the infrastructure in Providencia is damaged, and widespread devastation can be found across the rest of the Archipelago. Major flooding extended to Cartagena and other regions of the country. Two lives were lost, and thousands of others have been affected by the destruction.


As Colombian First Lady Maria Juliana Ruiz Sandoval recently said, “rebuilding is our purpose, and we want to do it from the noblest acts of humanity to concrete actions to build generously on what was lost.”


If you would like to help our compatriots rebuild their lives, you can make in-kind or monetary donations by:

  • Visiting www.solidaridadporcolombia.org or

  • Through the savings account of our ally organization, Solidarity Foundation for Colombia, at Bancolombia No.167.000.101.32 in the name of the Foundation with the Nit. 860.071.169-1.

We thank you in advance for your kindness, generosity and support. Our solidarity will always be a warm and actionable response to those who are overwhelmed by painful circumstances.


Colombia needs you!
