Proposal Form

38,000 Honduran have been infected by mosquito transmitted diseases - Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya. According to the World Organization, in Honduras the Zika Virus alone has been diagnosed in close to 20,000 people. The three viruses are transmitted by the Aedes Aegypti mosquito that thrive in tropical regions. Honduras is especially vulnerable because more than 60% of its population lives in poverty and under precarious housing circumstances where humidity and stagnated water is common, which creates the perfect environment for mosquito breeding. This epidemic is alarming because multiple studies about Zika has linked the virus with microcephaly in babies born of mothers infected with the virus. This project aims to provide a vulnerable community in Tegucigalpa, Honduras: Colonia Villa Nueva the tools to protect themselves from mosquito bites and education about preventive measures. This community represents 12% of the population of Tegucigalpa. This project will benefit approximately 2800 homes. The Rotary Club of Tegucigalpa will implement this program together with community volunteers. 8400 mosquito nets will be distributed to 2,800 households. Two fumigation machines will be provided to the Rotary Club of Villanueva which will be in charge of fumigating the community periodically to avoid mosquito reproduction in a sustainable manner. Educational materials will be distributed in the community to create awareness about the importance of taking preventive measures to avoid mosquito bites especially during pregnancy. For less than one dollar this project will help a person from La Colonia Villa Nueva be protected at home from exposure to mosquito bites and their potential health threats.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
