Summary

Missoula Medical Aid is supporting a Save the Children Honduras project to feed hungry families impoverished by the Covid 19 pandemic, and Hurricanes Eta and Iota. This project helps small farmers get supplies to plant a crop of basic grains this year, and gives groups of rural women training and seed money to start businesses making bread or tortillas. It also provides oral hygiene kits, and instruction, to children.

Challenge

Honduran families living close to the edge have suffered inordinately during Covid-19. Access to markets has been inhibited, and the rain has been too little, or (during the weeks of Hurricane's Eta and Iota) far too much. People are hungry. Families need food, and they need the capacity to grow more. And they need to be able to start new businesses that provide income in the coming year.

Solution

This project will help 150 families get the supplies they need to plant a crop of basic grains this year. It will help groups of women start small food processing businesses that will create income for 28 families in the coming year. And it will continue an on-going oral hygiene program that gives tooth brushing supplies to children, and teaches how to use them.

Long-Term Impact

This year has brought pestilence, drought, and flooding to the mountains of Intibuca, Honduras. These programs are designed to help families recover, and ultimately, stay in their communities. Farms will have what they need to grow crops this next year. Groups of women will start sustainable businesses in order to earn income again. And children, having developed good oral hygiene habits, will continue these habits throughout their lives.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
