Although water is plentiful in Honduras and the drinking water is pumped into cisterns close to most home in this area, the water is contaminated with bacteria and parasites. It is not safe to drink and the resulting stomach and intestinal disesases are endemic throughout this part of the counrty. The illnesses result in missed school or work, thus lost wages or job loss.
