Country Overview

Humanitarian Situation

Honduras has a very fragile situation that makes children extremely vulnerable. Adding to the current development problems and the vulnerability of its population to violence and poverty, in the year 2020, Honduras like many other countries had the COVID-19 emergency. In November of that same year unexpectedly two tropical storms, ETA and IOTA, hit Honduras, one next to the other in the same month. At the moment, Honduras is still trying to recover from these disasters. These and other factors as droughts in other areas of the country increased the number of internal displacements and migration. Honduras also has a mixed influx of migrants on the Southern border and a high number of Honduras nationals, among them children, are being deported from the North and left on the Northern border with Guatemala. Most of the deported people, families, and children re-enter the country without being noticed by authorities or registered. All of these circumstances make a very unstable situation for children. The resilience of the population and children is very fragile at the moment because of the unexpected added situations.
