Every year the Honduras Hope Mission (HHM) volunteer team of doctors, nurses, dentists and facilitators travel to La Villa de San Francisco, Honduras to run medical/dental clinics for locals. As part of their normal mission trip every February they hand out 500 water filters funded by Ingomar Living Waters. Each water filter lasts two years and can handle water needs of a family of four. So 1000 families are covered by this hand-out of 500 filters every year.
With the COVID pandemic in 2020-2021, the plans changed for the February 2021 trip. The trip became “virtual”. HHM set up a telehealth clinic at the Hope Center in the La Villa de San Francisco area and had a handful of local medical professionals on a video conference with the volunteer doctors in the US supporting the flow of patients. They handed out water filters at the telehealth visits and distributed the rest door-to-door in the La Villa de San Francisco area. In this way, 307 filters were distributed in the La Villa de San Francisco area. They then took 193 water filters to Suyapa where the local church distributed them.
Thank you to Ingomar Living Waters for continuing to provide 500 water filters every year to provide clean water for 1000 families in Honduras!
