- Recurrent shocks have been the norm
in Central America over the past decades and will be the norm in the foreseeable
- Families expect shocks in particular
drought but cannot manage them.
- Thus, drought is silently destroying people's means of livelihood, their ability to cope and recover.
- Of particular concern are the consequences for children who repeatedly, year after year do not have enough to eat.

Scottsdale, Ariz (June 18, 2002) - Food
for the Hungry is providing food and shelter-building materials for flood
victims in Honduras and Nicaragua.
In May of this year, Nicaragua and Honduras were drenched with more than two and a half times their normal rainfall. Some areas received 28 inches of rain within a two-week period. The ensuing floods and mudslides caused the evacuation of 1,200 homes. Seven highways and five bridges are in need of major repairs. Authorities have estimated the damage at about $1 million, and 3,000 Nicaraguans are temporarily homeless.
