(هُناك) is treated as a demonstrative particle which can be a subject mubtadaɁ of a nominal sentence. The closest meaning in English is 'there is/ there are). This translation is correct only when the  Arabic sentence starts with (هُناكَ). When (هُناكَ ) occurs in different word order, it means 'there'.
