HONDURAS: MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES
Honduras extended an amnesty for migrants until June 1, 2023, waiving the $240.00 fine for entering the country illegally. The measure comes as the municipalities of Danly and Trojes, near the southeastern border with Nicaragua, continue to struggle with shelter shortages, most notably the Jesús Está Vivo shelter in Danly, which housed 200 people a night and closed on January 15. The National Institute for Migration (INM) is continuing to build its Center for Integrated Migrant Response in Dunleigh, which will have temporary accommodation for 100 people per night.
INM data show that between January 1, 2022 and January 6, 2023, 192,547 people entered Honduras with an irregular status.
The LIFE-Honduras Consortium, a group that includes Action Against Hunger, UNICEF, Pure Water for the World, ChildFund, ADRA and the Relief from Suffering Foundation (FAS), continues to provide an emergency response to these populations of Danli and Troy, focusing on child protection, education , water, sanitation and hygiene, nutrition and health.
