El Salvador, Honduras and Colombia prepared for effective response

October, 8 – 11, 2018

Jose Bonilla, Institutional Preparedness Advisor, and Roberto Brito, Director for Latin America and the Caribbean for the American Red Cross briefed the National Red Cross Societies of El Salvador, Honduras, and Colombia, on the Preparedness for Effective Response (PER) tool for assessing institutional capacities.
