Honduras is the second poorest country in Latin America and many, many people who live in poverty in small rural and mountain villages have a great need for healthcare because they are nowhere near a hospital, clinic or pharmacy. Each January, a team of doctors, dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, nurses,other healthcare professionals, and volunteers pay their own way to go to Honduras on this week-long medical mission. In the last five years, these teams of healthcare professionals and volunteers have served more than 30,000 people without access to healthcare.  

Since January 2006, Holy Family Parish in Stow has sponsored this Medical Mission to Honduras.  Thankfully, members of Saint Clarence Parish in North Olmsted, Saint Vincent dePaul Parish in Cleveland, Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Wadsworth and Archbishop Hoban High School have supported this most worthy project.
