Honduran crisis disrupts street children program as MSF readies for medical response to violence

Due to the ongoing political crisis in Honduras and related clashes between security forces and protesters, activities at the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) street children center in Tegucigalpa have been disrupted as MSF staff have had difficulties reaching the center.

The MSF team in Honduras is getting ready to provide support to local health structures should they be overwhelmed by an influx of wounded in the coming days.

MSF has been providing medical and psychological support to children and young adults living in the streets of Tegucigalpa since 2005.
