This is a beautiful child with whom Meyer Brownstone played. On his next visit shortly later he tried to find the child but no own could tell me where she was until, finally, someone took pity on me and told me that the child had died of dysentery shortly after my visit. He was devastated by her death which illustrated the lack of health workers in the camps and the failure to educate the refugees in the treatment of dysentery. Colomancagua, Honduras, ca. 1985.

Listening to our tape deck. In general children were the focus of much attention from the various missions. Many were traumatized by the flight from El Salvador when refugees were attacked by the Salvador military and children were carried on the backs of Adults as they crossed the two rivers Lempa and Supul into Honduras while harassed and shot at by helicopters. But they responded to the friendliness, playfulness and small gifts from the mission members some of whom had a natural affinity to children e.g Father Greg Chisholm. Colomancagua, Honduras, ca. 1985.
