Help for Honduras
Food For The Poor (FFTP) began serving in Honduras in 1999, after the Central American country was slammed by Hurricane Mitch in 1998. The charity works with its partner CEPUDO, which is based in San Pedro Sula, and the Order of Malta. There are 99 projects under way, including water treatment and water purification, education, animal husbandry, sustainable community developments, agriculture, micro-enterprise, medical, sanitation, housing, and support for orphaned and abandoned children. FFTP also serves Honduras through donations of goods.
