Floods and landslides occurred due to the Eta and Iota hurricanes that struck Colombia and other countries in the region. More than 200 people lost their lives in the storms. Efforts by the Colombian state and local power continue to carry out repairs in destroyed settlement areas. Repairs are also done to fix the roads damaged by the hurricanes.

The aid distribution was carried out together with the Cartagena Municipality and the Colombian National Unit for Disaster Risk Management (UNGRD).
