Recently here in Honduras, we have unfortunately had to scale down our food program, cutting down the quantities to just daily fruit so that we can make sure that we can use all of our resources evenly and most importantly, make them last so that the project is sustainable, especially as malnutrition of our children has recently reached critical levels as we reported in May. Fortunately we are hoping to resume our daily meals program, which will include rice, beans and vegetables in the near future. We are all hoping that once more regular funds come through this will resume and will not be a worry anymore.
We are also hoping to invest in our sustainable programs, such as the vegetable gardens and the Plan Café, whereby the proceeds from the sales of the coffee beans will go towards providing regular daily food for the children. Unfortunately the children are 3-4 years behind in growth due to malnutrition, this being the problem that we are aiming to fix through regular quantities of food. Fortunately this imbalance is something that we are working hard to counteract, paying close attention to it and hoping that it is resolved very soon, especially with the help of the sustainable programs investments.
