AHMEN teams concerned with water quality in Honduras

     Life In a Single Drop of Water

     Life In a Single Drop of Water

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.
