A QUICK OVERVIEW:
Honduras, a Central American republic with a population of over 8 million people, is bordered by Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. The region and this country have suffered political crises, military conflicts and natural disasters throughout much of their history.
The level of poverty here is severe. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, with over 60% of its population living in poverty. Over half of households in rural areas are marked by extreme poverty, with daily incomes of less than $1.25. Many families, particularly those residing outside cities, do not have easy access to clean water or medical care; diseases that would be easily treatable in other countries often turn into deadly ones.
