43 Million Dollars Appeal for Victims of Central American Hurricane

Humanitarian groups in Central America say they need about 43 million $ for the nearly 6.5 million people affected by the two powerful hurricanes.

Hurricanes Eta and Iowa have been devastating in Central America, especially for children, said Brent Assan, director of UNICEF.

Eta hit the coast of Central America first, affecting 4.6 million people in Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Blaise, El Salvador, Costa Rico and Panama.

Two weeks later, another hurricane, Iowa, struck, adding to the damage. UNICEF says the two powerful storms have caused problems for the health and development of about 2 million children in the region.

UNICEF Director Asan says the situation will only get worse as water recedes from the affected areas. Therefore, with each passing day, the need for humanitarian assistance for children and families will increase.
