Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere with 65% of its population living in poverty. Honduras struggles with high rates of youth gang involvement, and the highest per capita murder rate in the world. Malnutrition, poor housing infrastructure, government corruption, and infant diseases are widespread, especially in rural areas where most people do not have access to clean water and sanitation. This climate of instability is especially dangerous for the roughly 150,000 orphaned children living in Honduras. Due to poverty, lack of family support, and social exclusion, orphaned and abandoned children are at high risk of illiteracy, malnutrition, child labour, gang involvement, violence, and sexual exploitation. When parents are unable to care for their children, it is nearly impossible to find support services. The lack of childcare services often leads parents to abandon their children in orphanages or shelters. Many of these orphanages are over-crowded, unhygienic, and unsupervised.As many families and their children cannot access basic health care, serious diseases are prevalent in rural areas. Rates of HIV and AIDS infection are high, and according to 2011 statistics from UNAIDS, there are currently 33,000 people living with HIV in Honduras. Although the rising crime rate in Honduras is a major factor in the country's widespread poverty problem, another significant issue is its mountainous terrain,which makes the construction of roads and other infrastructure improvements difficult. The isolation experienced by many families living in rural Honduran villages has created a scarcity of food and also contributed to the ongoing unemployment situation. Thank you for reading and learning a little about the situation in Honduras. Honduras es uno de los países más pobres del hemisferio occidental con el 65% de su población vive en la pobreza. Honduras lucha con altas tasas de participación de jovenes en las pandillas y la tasa de homicidios per cápita más alta del mundo. Desnutrición, infraestructura de viviendas pobres, la corrupción gubernamental y enfermedades infantiles son generalizadas, especialmente en zonas rurales donde la mayoría de personas no tienen acceso a agua potable y saneamiento. Este clima de inestabilidad es especialmente peligroso para los aproximadamente 150.000 niños huérfanos que viven en Honduras. Debido a la pobreza, la falta de apoyo familiar y la exclusión social, huérfanos y niños abandonados están en alto riesgo de analfabetismo, desnutrición, trabajo infantil, participación en pandillas, violencia y explotación sexual. Cuando los padres son incapaces de cuidar de sus hijos, es casi imposible encontrar servicios de apoyo. La falta de servicios de guardería conduce a menudo a los padres a abandonar a sus hijos en orfanatos o en refugios. Muchos de estos orfanatos están superpobladas, antihigiénicas y sin supervisión.Como muchas familias y sus hijos no pueden acceder a atención básica de salud, enfermedades graves son frecuentes en las zonas rurales. Las tasas de infección por VIH y el SIDA son altas y según 2011 las estadísticas de ONUSIDA, actualmente hay 33.000 personas que viven con el VIH en Honduras. Aunque la creciente tasa de delincuencia en Honduras es un factor importante en el problema del país la pobreza generalizada, otra cuestión importante es su terreno montañoso, que dificulta la construcción de carreteras y otras mejoras en la infraestructura. El aislamiento experimentada por muchas familias que viven en aldeas rurales hondureñas ha creado una escasez de alimentos y también contribuyó a la situación de desempleo permanente. Gracias por leer y aprender un poco sobre la situación en Honduras.
