Honduras to Receive Disaster Relief

COPECO announced yesterday that the European Union (EU) will provide Honduras 2.5 million U.S. dollars for disaster prevention and relief.

The EU, together with the commission, will help build disaster prevention and relief capacities in nine vulnerable communities in Honduras. Projects aimed at developing and implementing emergency plans and mitigation works, flood risk maps, early warning systems and community awareness campaigns, will be the responsibility of: Christian Aid, Dan Church Aid (DCA), GOAL, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the European Commission’s partners in the country.

The aid will be given through the Action Plan of the Disaster Preparation Program of the European Commission in Central America, which has been working in the region since 1998.

Last year, tropical storm Matthew killed four people, affected 5,902 others and damaged 2,799 houses in Honduras.
