JTF-Bravo Resumes Support Operations in Honduras and Guatemala

first_imgBy Kay Valle/Diálogo November 23, 2020 Only days after supporting Central American countries, following the devastation caused by Hurricane Eta, teams of U.S. Southern Command’s (SOUTHCOM) Joint Task Force Bravo (JTF-Bravo) are back in Honduras and Guatemala to provide assistance to areas affected by Hurricane Iota. Both hurricanes hit Central America within two weeks, causing landslides and flooding that displaced entire communities and left dozens of people missing and dead.On November 18, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced that it was allocating an additional $17 million in vital aid to the people who had been affected in Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The donation will provide food, hygiene supplies, critical relief items, and protection to the most vulnerable people.“Our team is ready to continue the fight,” U.S. Army Colonel John D. Litchfield, commander of JTF-Bravo, said in a statement. “We are proud to continue working with our partners and USAID to get supplies to those who need it most. Our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected by these storms.”Teams of the U.S. force will focus primarily on delivering humanitarian aid to hard-to-reach areas in the region, and will support search and rescue efforts, JTF-Bravo’s Public Affairs Office said in a statement.According to a report from the government of Honduras, six departments in the northwestern part of the country were hit by this latest hurricane, leaving more than 738,000 people affected and causing damage to homes, public infrastructure, and cultivated areas.In Guatemala, Army Colonel Rubén Antonio Téllez, press director for the Guatemalan Defense Ministry, told Diálogo that the rains from Iota once again affected areas prone to landslides in the departments of Alta Verapaz, Quiché, and Zacapa.The U.S. Embassy in Guatemala indicated on its Twitter account that two JTF-Bravo CH-47 Chinook helicopters had deployed “to work with @Army_GT [Guatemalan Army], bringing food and supplies to areas most affected by storm #Iota.”During its rescue and humanitarian support missions to communities affected by Eta in Honduras, Guatemala, and Panama, JTF-Bravo rescued 289 people and transported more than 171 metric tons of life-saving supplies, according to the force’s Public Affairs Office.“This result that we’ve had of support is thanks to that great collaboration and understanding with the [U.S.] Department of Defense and SOUTHCOM,” General (ret.) Fredy Santiago Díaz Zelaya, secretary of defense of Honduras, told Diálogo. “We are grateful to Admiral [Craig] Faller [commander of SOUTHCOM] for his great leadership and above all for being so attentive to Honduras, for his willingness, and great support.”last_img read more

Cleary Centre Project funding application to be considered in July

first_imgSinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Deputy Pearse Doherty has welcomed confirmation that an application for capital funding for the redevelopment of the Cleary Centre in Donegal Town is due to be formally appraised by the HSE’s Estates Department shortly.It’s understood that the group, which has overall responsibility for providing property services to the HSE, will examine the proposal for the Donegal Town project at its next meeting this July.The Cleary Centre Parents and Friends Committee have been campaigning for years to have the facility redeveloped as part of disability services in South Donegal. Deputy Doherty, who has worked closely with the group, has welcomed today’s update. He said: “While day services were relocated in 2016 to the Victor Complex on the outskirts of the town on a temporary basis, it has always been the goal of all involved in this campaign to have the former Cleary Centre rebuilt and its services returned to the facility to ensure the continuation of disability services into the long term.“At the start of the year there was much disappointment at the announcement that the project would not be included as part of the approved capital projects for 2018 as expectations were high that it would get the go ahead to proceed.“However, since then it was confirmed earlier this year that a business case for the project was received by the HSE’s Estates Department along with other additional supporting documentation.“After having sought a progress report from the Minister last month, the HSE has now replied to me to confirm that its Estates Department will meet now in July where it’s expected that the Cleary Centre proposal will be appraised and considered. “While it’s obviously too early yet to comment on what the possible outcome of this process will be, the fact that we now know that the project is shortly set to come before the HSE is to be welcomed.“I am again calling on the HSE to give this important project the green light without any further delay as it’s now crucial that these redevelopment works proceed and that the new Cleary Centre is delivered for service users here in Donegal.“The Parents and Friends Committee, which has worked tirelessly to get this project to where it is today, has shown such strength and resilience throughout what has been a long and, at times, arduous and frustrating process.“Its members have never given up and I want to again commend them for all their efforts to date as they have ensured that the Cleary Centre remains at the top of the agenda.“While we await the outcome of next month’s meeting, I pledge to continue to support the Committee in its work and to make representations on their behalf, as well as on behalf of the centre’s hard working staff and all those who depend on these vital services and supports.” Cleary Centre Project funding application to be considered in July was last modified: June 26th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CLEARY CENTREdisability servicesDonegal TownPearse Doherty TDlast_img read more
