In Yoro, Honduras as well as a home we are trying to control mosquitoes using plants that are natural repellents.
The url above shares with us the plants that can make a difference in our lives as well as in the lives of others in countries where the zika virus is a real threat to especially unborn children.
Students at the Honduras Hope sponsored dormitory are propagating plants which will be shared with people whose homes are one room buildings without screens. Our goal is to turn the land adjacent to the dormitory buildings into a place to propagate these plants. The students are already growing food there. With their skills they will be able to grow useful mosquito repellent plants to distribute to people in other under served communities. The target homes will be those of expectant mothers.
