We believe in providing sustainable and tangible solutions to solvable problems that people face.
Dirt floors are very common in many parts of the world. In Honduras, many homes have very basic walls and a roof, but many of the homes are lacking a very basic, important element— a concrete floor.
Why are concrete floors so important?
Among the study's findings: "A complete substitution of dirt floors by cement floors in a house leads to a 78 percent reduction in parasitic infestations, a 49 percent reduction in diarrhea, an 81 percent reduction in anemia and a 36 to 96 percent improvement in cognitive development."
Beyond this, adults reported "increased satisfaction with ... their quality of life."
Our Connect Global team was able to pour 3 new floors for families in need as well as leave the funds to pour 2 more.
The main focus of the Connect Global Honduras trip in August 2018 was to complete a water well project. We were also able to complete 3 NEW concrete floors while we were in town. Concrete floors are a huge need and they make an immediate impact. These floors improve the quality of life and may even save lives. These families have plenty to overcome and enough challenges to face that we believe a safe, sanitary floor should not be something they have to worry about.
If you would like to help us sponsor more concrete floors in Honduras, we invite you to make a tax-deductible donation towards our upcoming trips and projects.
You can help a family in need get a clean, and safe new floor this year!
