ROLLA — A student group at Missouri University of Science and Technology has canceled a humanitarian trip to Honduras next month.
Political unrest in the Central American country, including a presidential coup, prompted the decision. Students at the Rolla school hope to reschedule the trip for December and January.
About 20 members of the Engineers Without Borders student chapter had planned to travel to the Honduran town of Santiago in August to help improve drinking water systems.
Last year, students from Missouri S&T installed a 2,000-gallon water tank in the same town. They also built rainwater collection systems and provided water systems for homes.
