For the final installment of this series about Hunger Relief International's 2020 "Trifecta Project," we take you inside the mountain village of Las Brisas. From there we explain our process of identifying recipient families and the next steps we are taking to complete the project, as well as how YOU can help bring transformation to even more families in this region of Guatemala.
In Part 4 of this 5-part series about Hunger Relief International's 2020 "Trifecta Project," we look at the final component of the Trifecta: safe cookstoves. The short- and long-term term effects of inhaling smoke from open cookfires day after day range from chronic coughing to pneumonia to lung cancer, and even to death. The safe cookstove component of the Trifecta significantly reduces the amount of household air pollution present, leading to improved outcomes for children and adults alike.
In Part 3 of this 5-part series about Hunger Relief International's 2020 "Trifecta Project," we take a closer look at the second component of the Trifecta: latrines. Latrines improve sanitation and personal health by keeping human waste out of the local ecosystem and by keeping flies from landing on food after being in contact with human waste.
Parts 2-4 of the "Hitting the Trifecta" series will explain each component of HRI'sTrifecta in detail. As you read the explanations of each of the three components, I think you will begin to see just why HRI’s Trifecta can be such a game-changer for every family that benefits from it. Part 2 shares how clean water changes the game.
