El Salvador shares the social and political experiences of most countries of Central America: a small ruling elite, abject poverty, foreign interference and domination, and civil war.  Compounding and exacerbating the situation, El Salvador is prone to volcanoes, earthquakes and floods.  The people that came together to form the Romero Community suffered through these adversities, displaced by the war, Hurricane Mitch and the 2001 earthquakes.  They asked the Centro de Intercambio y Solidaridad, CIS, to accompany them on their quest for land, permanent homes and dignity and a future for their children.  The combined effort is The Romero Community Development, Land & Dignified Housing Project.
