Tomorrow, a team from Tarrytown United Methodist Church is flying into Honduras from Austin, Texas to install the first set of water filters for 2016! Traveling with the team will be representatives from our home office in Atlanta and a representative from the CDC.

The CDC is collaborating with HOI to complete a study on our filter program and its effectiveness in the villages.  Students from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras (UNAH) in Tegucigalpa are also involved with this study.  They have been stationed at the Ranch since this summer and are assisting with the data collection.

We’re excited about the project launch and are grateful to all of our partners that are helping in this venture! Check back in a few weeks to get the latest.
