hamper is a synonym of hinder

verb [ ham-per ]

hamper is another word for hinder

Hinder might suggest that progress has stopped completely while the delay is dealt with, while hamper may suggest that the action is still going on, just slower or less efficiently (We were hampered by the loss of the map).
