Los Castaños, Santa Barbara
This community is located on the East side of Honduras, and whose population cultivates basic grains (i.e., rice, beans, corn), and work for coffee growers during the harvest season. Once the harvest passes, they are left without other means of income causing poor nutrition and dreadful living conditions which in turn bring sickness to the community in general.
VISITING LOS CASTAÑOS
Los Castaños is located about 70 miles from San Pedro Sula and is only accessible with a 4x4 vehicle, by horse, or by foot. There are approximately 30 houses built out of dirt and clay. Most of these houses do not have access to essential sanitary services and have limited access to water.
When is not harvest season, some men manage to get sporadic jobs at nearby ranches making approximately $4.95 per day.
This community does not have a school nor a clinic. Children walk nearly an hour to attend the nearest school and close to two for an emergency visit to a clinic.
A group of four CDI volunteers visited this community on October 2nd, 2018. Bringing with them a message of hope, love, and joy to the children and their parents.
During this visit, the team organized games that involved children as well as adults, lifting the spirit of the entire community.
We were able to deliver toys, T-shirts, shoes, and winter clothing.
There was also a puppet skit, as well as piñatas, and competitions.
Lastly, lunch and drinks were served to approximately 80 people (children and adults) thanking God for his unmeasurable love.
Please keep us in your prayers as we seek direction in which we can continue to help Los Castaños.
To all who already assist this organization, THANK YOU.
