Hurricane Eta has left a trail of destruction across Central America, with thousands of people left homeless and facing huge damage to their farms and land.

Trócaire is supporting relief efforts in Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Working with our local partners, we helped to evacuate people from the most at risk areas before the storm hit.

The category 4 hurricane battered the northern coast of Central America, bringing extensive flooding and landslides.

At least 70 people are known to have died, while an estimated 35,000 people are currently in temporary shelter.

Many of the people affected were already struggling for income due to various Covid-19 related measures. The widespread damage to farms and workplaces caused by this storm will make life even harder.

The affected countries have appealed for international help. Trócaire is working with our local partners to deliver aid to people affected.
