Help Feed 1000 Indigenous People in Honduras

At the end of April, in Honduras, we weighed the children in our primary school in the community of San Rafael. After weighing a few children the teachers had to stop and check if the scale was faulty as the actual weights seemed very low. The scales were found to be correct.

On average the first grade children (6-7 years old) weighed 38lbs. The normal weight of a similar aged child in Honduras is 45-50lbs. The average weight of the 3rd and 4th grade children in San Rafael is roughly the same as the average weight of 1st graders in Copan Ruinas, a small town some 20 minutes away by road - in short, the children are 3-4 years behind in growth due to malnutrition. We are trying to continue the food and fruit program to counter this imbalance.
