Our work in Honduras
Tearfund began working in Honduras in the 1970s in response to hurricanes and the influx of refugees from neighbouring civil wars. We began community development work in the late 1980s in some of the most remote and marginalised regions.
Today, we work through several local partner organisations. Together, we are committed to strengthening marginalised communities and training and equipping churches to tackle local problems.
We continue to support churches in their response to emergencies caused by natural disasters, such as Hurricanes Eta and Iota which tore through Honduras in November 2020 destroying homes, infrastructure and crops.
We are also committed to supporting the most vulnerable children and young people by equipping churches to support them and raising awareness of child abuse.
