Assets seized from crime help migrants in Honduras

Friday, August 18, 2017


First Lady of Honduras Ana Garcia said that to date, there has been a 43-percent decrease in the repatriation of children and adolescents in 2017 compared to this time last year.

She said that some of the assets seized from organized crime are being used for the creation of reception centers for migrants who have returned to northern Honduras. “What used to be used for evil, now serves the good of the poor people in need,” she said.

An effective reintegration into society for these people and their families has been helped by the help centers in cities such as San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba and Tegucigalpa.
