Challenge

On March 15, Honduras's international borders closed, with internal curfew and movement restrictions as a preventive measure to stop the spread of COVID-19. Utila's tourism dependent economy has been completely frozen by the pandemic, and their limited medical facilities leave them vulnerable to the coronavirus. Honduras's border's have recently opened, but tourism has yet to fully resume. These conditions also impact the ability of Jasper's Utila Animal Shelter to provide animal care.

Solution

Support Utila seeks to expand our efforts in better equipping Utila's community medical facilities to control, prevent and treat COVID-19, along with continued support for families who are not receiving the necessary income to provide their basic food and hygiene needs plus improving sanitary conditions. We also seek to ensure the animal welfare as contributing providing necessary resources to Jasper's Utila Animal Shelter to care for pets and rescue strays along.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help reduce the impact and spread of COVID-19 on Utila, while improving their healthcare resources to be better prepared against disease and healthcare concerns. By distributing food and basic needs packages, we will reduce malnutrition and hunger, which will help increase the overall health and well-being for all. Through our partnership with Jasper's Utila Animal Shelter, we will maintain the good health of pets, and work towards eliminating animal homelessness.
