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). UNGRD Cartagena Director Fernando Abello also participated in the aid distribution. Due to the tough land conditions, the aid was delivered to the victims by a boat provided by La Armada de Colombia.
