HEKS/EPER supports hurricane victims in Honduras
Central America suffered extensive damage in November after being struck in rapid succession by two hurricanes, namely «ETA» and «IOTA», which had wind speeds of up to 250 km/h. The countries hit were Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala. Over a million people are suffering the consequences of the natural disaster. In Honduras it was the northern region that took the worst hit. Swiss Church Aid (HEKS/EPER) is therefore providing emergency aid worth half a million francs in that region. The project is being supported by Swiss Solidarity and SDC.
