27 Jan Thank You for Investing in Water and Sanitation
Clean water is critical—both for the health of coral reefs and the communities that depend on them. That’s why we support sanitation efforts in places like Coxen Hole, Honduras.
Coxen Hole is a community on the island of Roatan, which is located just off the country’s northern coastline. Coxen Hole depends on its coral reefs, but currently, untreated wastewater is flowing directly into the nearshore environment, posing a threat to people, animals, and coral reefs. That’s why we’re helping the community operationalize a wastewater treatment plant, similar to what we previously implemented in the community of West End.
Sussy Ochoa, local resident and an independent civil engineer, is leading her community in the Coxen Hole initiative because she understands the importance of keeping ocean waters clean. She has been fighting to save coral reefs since 2015.
Thank you for supporting community leaders like Sussy! Your donation gives her the resources necessary to improve water quality in Coxen Hole—and ultimately save coral reefs in the Mesoamerican region.
