As we traveled to various villages in Honduras to proceed with the medical brigades, we were taken back by the lack of access to clean water. We saw boys and girls drinking right out of streams that are less than sanitary. Yes, people have systems set up to get themselves water from the rivers, but other people up stream may be washing their clothes or dumping trash into the river. This causes all types of contamination issues in the water. And if people do not have clean water to drink, it is hard for them to stay hydrated and healthy in their lives. Therefore, the cycle continues. The people need teams to come to bring medicine because they are sick from the water (among other things).
