Jesús García Hernández, in the village of Los Horcones, Langue, Valle, Honduras. "The community is affected by a prolonged drought. We’ve just lost another harvest, it’s gone on for nine years. Winters used to be good, we’d have rain. Now we have years where there’s no water in the streams, the rivers, the wells. We need water, without it we suffer. The crops need water, without it they don’t grow and we don’t get a crop, it’s simple. The trees keep the humidity, but man has chopped down the trees. Now the trees that are left are drying up”.
Jesús stands next to an empty rainwater harvesting tank at his house.
