AHMEN teams concerned with water quality in Honduras
Many AHMEN teams will soon be again working to improve the health of the poor in Honduras through water quality education and installation of home water filtration systems. The lack of pure, safe drinking water is the largest killer of young children across the world. Water education has been an important tool for AHMEN. Using the monograph "Worms and Germs" written by AHMEN members, local families learn about the importance of water quality for their family's health. The monograph was recently update to include the new mosquito borne risks of Zika virus and the Chikungunya virus. These are available to read or download in English and Spanish.
Drinking Water for a Family in Honduras
The next time you go into your kitchen for a glass of water, please think of this picture. Here at home, we take it for granted that our water will not make us sick. Sure, there are occasional problems, but for the most part anywhere you go in the U.S. you can brush you teeth with tap water or swallow a little water in the shower. We don’t have to worry that your kids will get parasites or worse. Life is very different in Honduras.
