Attacking Zika in Honduras

Zika, Dengue Fever and Chikungunya are rampant diseases in Latin America. The one thing these three ailments have in common is the mosquito that carries them - Aedes Aegypti. The Aedes mosquito spreads all three illnesses across borders with indifference to those they affect. Operation Blessing is launching a full offensive against the mosquito using a method readily found in nature - fish and turtles. Both are natural predators of the mosquito larvae and their implementation into the average Central American household could save many lives.
