2005-2007 Honduras Trip Report

 

After the original trip to the area in 2005, we began doing small projects with the villagers of Moccorron including helping the school, the women's cooperative, and the men's cooperative.  In 2006, we were awarded two Matching Grants, one for Biosand filters and one for water wells. The statistics for waterborne disease in Honduras overall are horrible and Gracias a Dios is certainly worse than the average statistics. All the villages take their drinking water straight from the rivers that are contaminated primarily from animal and human waste. The villagers we've met with say that rate of illness, primarily diarrhea, is at least 30% among the children.
