Honduran Hurricane Crisis Response

 

Flooding from Hurricane Eta

Between November 3rd and 6th, the slow-moving Hurricane Eta came through Nicaragua, Honduras and parts of Guatemala. It eventually downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it hit Honduras, however it left massive amounts of flooding, damage and destruction.

Less than two weeks later, Hurricane Iota followed Eta’s path of destruction. Also downgraded to a tropical storm before hitting Honduras, the main issue from Iota became torrential rain and severe flooding.

Thousands of people had to abandon their homes and everything they owned to find shelter due to the dangerous rising flood waters. 

Schools of Hope, ERDO's partner in Honduras, works mostly in the capital of Tegucigalpa where there has been some flood damage from overflowing rivers. Though the city was spared mass damage, there are areas that need our help.

ERDO is coordinating efforts with Schools of Hope to help those in greatest need both in Tegucigalpa and in other parts of the country. We are working with local churches and other missionaries that we have relationships with through the Honduran Evangelical Fellowship of Missionaries.

Your generous donation

Flooding from Hurricane Eta

 

To assist the flood victims of Eta and Iota in Honduras, our coordinated work will include:  

  • We will clean and disinfecting houses affected by flooding, removing debris and items destroyed by water.
  • We will provide emergency food and hygiene baskets to cover the needs of a family for one month. These baskets will include staples like rice, beans, oil, soap, bleach, toothpaste, toothbrushes and personal hygiene items (deodorant, soap, shampoo, feminine hygiene products).
  • We will hand out other basic necessities like socks, underwear, t-shirts, bedding and towels.

Your generous donation can make a huge difference in this time of need. Many families have been struggling with the challenges of COVID-19, and this hurricane season is leaving them even more vulnerable. Please help today.

Any assistance will make a difference!
