It’s obvious we’re making a difference in the dump in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Here are a few things I’ve seen …
* a purification system was put in this past December that provides clean water to the area.
* a day care is being run just outside the dump and parents are encouraged to being their children there instead of taking them in the dump.
* weekly feedings that take place every Wednesday. Today at noon the people in the dump will get to eat a plate of hot food.
And then yesterday, Marc Tindall wrote on his Facebook status about another way we’re making a difference in the dump. His words were …
“More than a year ago, a group from the local University in Honduras, started construction on a place in the dump where people could clean up & shower. When the money ran out this project was stopped. Yesterday in thanks to Dump Day 2010 and Bread for a Hungry World, construction restarted.”
I just want to say thank you today for all you’ve given through this blog to make this possible. Dump Day 2010 was a huge success and no doubt Dump Day 2011 will be just as great.
