Last April, END7 donors helped support Honduras’ deworming campaign by filling a funding gap of $28,000 to help facilitate the training of school children, teachers, and communities on parasitic worms and the importance of hand washing. END7 donations also delivered clean water to 100,461 people by purchasing and installing water treatment equipment in the municipalities of Marcovia and El Triunfo.

The project was planned and implemented by Honduras’ Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education, PAHO, WFP, Operation Blessing and MAMA Project.
