Though media coverage has turned to other negative subjects in reference to the electoral process of the United States, thousands of rural people in Honduras are hoping someone remembers them as they continue to face the devastation, left behind by Hurricane ETA. The Chamber will distribute to Honduran hurricane battered communities tents, meals, antibiotics, feminine products, blankets, solar lamps, and other assistance as they work to recover.
The Chamber will contribute in the following development:
“Specifically, The U.S. MCC is committed to identify, mobilize, and provide at its coordination, tools, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency in Honduras”, said Doug Mayorga, Senior Executive of the Committee Planning for Disaster Program Honduras by the U.S. MCC , “The U.S. MCC is ready to facilitate communication, coordination, and cooperation between our taskforce and our counterpart in Honduras, through our leadership in disaster preparedness, response , and bring corporate partners to connect with nonprofit organizations and federal government agencies in recovery and be more prepared to face the reconstruction of a friendly country like Honduras. We are Honduras”.
About the U.S MCC: The Honduras’ mission is to restore in a timely manner the area’s affected by hurricane ETA.
