Caritas Spain sends $280,000 to flood victims in Central America

.- Administrators of Caritas Spain have approved a donation of $280,000 to assist victims of recent flooding in Central America.

The floods, caused by heavy rains, have affected 1.2 million people, resulting in hundreds of deaths and injuries in Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica.

Caritas reported that the flooding has also destroyed numerous bridges and roadways. In addition, it has caused massive losses in the agricultural industry, which is the economic engine for numerous communities in the region.

The aid from Caritas Spain will center on meeting the basic needs of those affected and rebuilding homes and buildings that were destroyed.

Caritas offices in various countries of Central America have begun mobilizing employees and volunteers to form rapid-response teams to bring resources to the areas most in need.

Caritas Spain has also dispatched expert engineer Mario Fanjul to evaluate the damage and identify the most urgent needs in order to develop medium and long term responses to assist in the reconstruction.
