Gildan and World Vision Honduras have signed onto another two-year partnership, effectively locking in what will soon be a decade-long collaborative effort to support communities in Honduras. In this next phase, Gildan has committed USD $175,000 toward a Children’s Education and Transformation program, bringing Gildan’s investment to over USD $600,000 since the partnership began.
In November 2020, back-to-back Hurricanes Eta and Iota caused major devastation in Honduras, affecting more than 3 million people, about one-third of the country’s population. Immediately following the storms, FedEx worked closely with Water Mission to provide people in remote areas of Honduras with access to safe water.
As the global pandemic continues to claim lives worldwide, two catastrophic hurricanes recently ravaged Honduras, where streets remain flooded and homes uninhabitable. During the first week of November, Category 4 Hurricane Eta pummeled 140 mph winds across the country’s north and eastern shores, also striking Guatemala and Nicaragua. Less than two weeks later, Category 5 Hurricane Iota doubled the blow.
With a new investment of more than US $170,000 signed earlier this year, Gildan and World Vision Honduras are enhancing their existing partnership and will collaborate to diligently strengthen World Vision’s sustainable education intervention program in 1,200 schools in Honduras.
