The Municipality of Lepaterique, LM Honduras

In recent weeks we have seen the results of generosity, action and implementation of a large team of people and the impact of Kohler Clarity Water Filters. The C4W network in collaboration with individuals from Kohler, Inc., the Safe Water Project, ASER Foundation / ChildFund International, USA in Honduras knows that 20 families now have access to clean, safe water to drink.

The community of Guayabal in the Municipality of Lepaterique, LM Honduras, where these families live, like many is challenged to access safe water. The need of many is profound. But with the help from people that cared enough to take action and champion this cause, 20 families from this community (119 individuals) can live healthier lives.

There is a plan in place for following-up and monitoring the proper use of the filters and tracking health indicators of the families via The Development Association of the Area of Lepaterique (ADAL) and their local staff.

This is a great work that benefits these 119 individuals and the community at large. And yet, there is still many more individuals and families that need access to clean, safe drinking water. This event happened only because of people like you that championed water filters for others. Click here to learn how you can become a C4W Champion.

Safe Water for rural communities of Lepaterique, Francisco Morazán, Honduras

To increase access to safe water for 300 families in seven communities of the Municipality of Lepaterique, Francisco Morazán through the support of Kohler Clarity water filters.

 

The Municipality of Lepaterique, located south of the Department of Francisco Morazán has a total population of 13,415 inhabitants, their communities depend mostly on agriculture (corn, beans, vegetables) as well as the exploitation and sale of resin. Their water sources come from the mountains where the main rivers form, water that is consumed by families. The responsible institutions, mainly the SANAH and the Ministry of Health do not carry out water quality analysis to ensure that water is safe for consumption, nor do they carry out actions for the protection of water sources and wastewater treatment.

Families are not aware of the problems caused by untreated water, so they consume it directly from a series of pipes through which it reaches their homes; children under 5 years of age (especially with gastrointestinal diseases) and the elderly are more vulnerable to water-borne diseases.

 

Working with the ASEAR Company (the area representative for Business Connect) that provides water treatment and purification products, ChildFund International, USA in Honduras and the ADAL in coordination with the government health services that operate in the different sectors of the Municipality of Lepaterique, manifest the need to promote actions on water management, with water treatment and purification methods, responding to the demand of the population in communities with higher indicators of gastrointestinal diseases, all due to the low quality of drinking water, which is affected by sediment from agricultural production and little coverage of human waste treatment systems in water producing communities.
