Due to the ongoing political crisis in Honduras and related clashes between security forces and protesters, activities at the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) street children center in Tegucigalpa have been disrupted. MSF staff have had difficulties reaching the center.

The MSF team in Honduras is preparing to provide support to local health structures should they be overwhelmed by an influx of wounded in the coming days.

MSF has been providing medical and psychological support to children and young adults living in the streets of Tegucigalpa since 2005.
