(November 19, 2020) On November 12, 2020, Hurricane Eta tore through the country of Honduras and caused significant damage throughout. The strongest storm to hit the region since 1998, Eta caused severe flood damage to the Asentamientos Humanos Community Center that affected all equipment and property inside the building. Many sponsored children’s homes were flooded, with some expected to be a total loss. We have no reports of death or serious injury, but the extensive damage has caused delays in all communications coming out of Honduras.
Based on early reporting, our staff is working on establishing contact with volunteers and families. So far, it appears everyone is accounted for, but it will take time to reach everyone. Water levels are receding, but there is still broad flooding and power loss.
Communication will be a challenge for weeks to come, but we will work to provide updates as we receive them.
To help overwhelmed families, donate to the Critical Needs Fund.
