Partnering to Reduce Illness in Western Honduras

Agua Pura partners with local organizations to support our work in Latin America. One of our long-time partners of 8 years is Proyecto Aldea Global (PAG), in Honduras.  Over the years your donations have helped us with a range of projects providing water pasteurization indicators (WAPIs) and water filters to families and schools in Honduras.  Recently, with the help of a Grant we received, we were able to broaden our impact by providing support for two larger projects in rural committees in the mountains of Western Honduras.

The first project, Water Purification Filters to Improve the Health of Families in Western Honduras, began in June 2020 and is nearly complete. This project provided 200 clay type water filters to families like that of Yolanda C. and 25 larger volume filters to local schools so the young children have safe water to drink.  Agua Pura trained PAG staff in modern water testing methods to identify bacteria in local water sources and then helped provide educational workshops to teach families how to use, treat and safeguard their drinking water.  These new filters are helping them to continue purifying their water and reduce illness.  

The second project, Build Improved Combination Latrines and Hygiene Modules For Families In Honduras, also began in June 2020 and is also nearly completed.  Agua Pura provided funding for materials for families who lacked adequate sanitation to build 15 combination composting latrines and hygiene stations  in the municipality of Belen Gualcho, Honduras.  This project is helping reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal diseases through better sanitation and hygiene.  Providing improved latrines as well as facilities for hand washing and bathing helps protect families from infection including cholera and other viruses such as covid-19.  Families not only received intensive training in sanitation and disease prevention, but took pride in building these new safe latrines.

With your donations we will be able to continue supporting our partners in providing cleaner water, safer latrines and improved hygiene for families living in poverty throughout Latin America.
