A trip to Honduras
Honduras, along with a number of other countries in Central America and the Caribbean region has been hit by a devastating hurricane called Eta.
The winds and the rains have devastated communities in the region, leaving millions affected: dead, displaced with destroyed houses and crops. All happens during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemics, which complicates the situation and the response greatly.
In order to respond to the humanitarian needs, together with my colleagues, we are planning a fact finding emergency mission to Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua (for now, later other countries may be included), so that we can support the humanitarian partners in their relief operations.
I am leaving Panama City for Tegucigalpa on Saturday and should stay in Honduras for around two weeks.
As usual, watch this space for additional updates!
