Within a span of two weeks, Hurricanes Eta and Iota left extensive damage throughout Honduras, impacting more than 3 million people and displacing nearly 180,000.
Torrential rain from the storms brought several feet of rainfall to some regions and has caused devastating flooding. Approximately 55,000 residents are living in shelters, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
After any natural disaster, safe water is a critical need and an immediate priority for the survivors. Our disaster response teams are coordinating efforts with local government authorities and other aid organizations to provide safe water to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.
Our team plans to continue:
We invite you to pray for our brothers and sisters in Honduras. The recovery process will require substantial rebuilding of roads, bridges, homes, and other infrastructure required across so many communities. Our entire team around the world is thankful for God’s providence and how He continues to provide as we serve alongside so many amazing community volunteers and partners.
