Panama City, Panama, June 28 (CNA) - The Republic of China government has donated more than US$370,000 to Honduras to help fund water supply projects in the Central American country's rural areas, according to a report issued Saturday by Honduras-based Radio America.

Accepting the money a day earlier, Honduran International Cooperation Minster Karen Zelaya also appealed to government and non- government organizations worldwide to sponsor projects promoting health and wellbeing for the Honduran people.

The fund is to be used for improving water supplies and sanitation systems in impoverished provinces and several immigrant reception centres in the country.
