Guatemala, SouthAmerica, Colombia 04.01.2021

The Central and Northern American countries on the shores of the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean that face hurricanes every year have just been struck by strong hurricanes. Hundreds of people lost their lives and went missing in the hurricanes that began to hit the countries since the beginning of November. Serious damages were reported in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, the mainlands of Colombia and the group of islands of the Nicaraguan shore of Colombia due to the Eta and Iota hurricanes that affected the region.


IHH mobilized immediately after the disaster by delivering food and hygiene packets to 5.700 victims. In addition, the families of 57 physically and mentally disabled children also benefitted from this aid.


In collaboration with the Guatemala National Coordination for Disaster Reduction (CONRED), the hygiene packet aid was distributed to shelters in the Alta Verapaz, Peten, Huehuetenango, Izabal, Quiche, Zapata and Chiquimula regions. The food and hygiene packet aid for 650 families in total was distributed on Colombia’s San Andres Island.
