Mission to Honduras

'MODIFIED' HONDURAS MEDICAL MISSION- JANUARY 14, 2021 UPDATE 
 
Thanks to your great generosity, 4,000 healthcare kits were delivered this week to the communities we would have served in Honduras this week. Each healthcare kit contained pain reliever, cough and cold medicine, anti-parasite, vitamins, hand sanitizer, a mask and an apple. People were very grateful that we were able to help them even though we could not travel to Honduras.
 
  • 600 to Guadalajara
  • 1,400 to La Villa de San Francisco
  • 200 to Moroceli
  • 400 to Nuevo Paraiso
  • 600 to La Esperanza
  • 200 to El Campo
  • 200 to Coyolito
  • 400 to Oscar's Cigar Factory in Danli

 

This week, Honduran staff who worked for us last year received the same amount we gave them last year as financial assistance since most of them don't have a job when groups are not there.
 
Sociedad Amigos de los Ninos received our $10,000 donation in memory of the late Sister Maria Rosa (founder of Sociedad) to be used for Covid-19 relief for children and staff.
 
Donations are still being accepted for this project and for a potential Spring project. Please make your check payable to Holy Family Church and mail it to me at the address below. You may also Venmo your donation to me at @Michael-Ausperk and I ask that you notify me by email of your Venmo donation so I can confirm it with you. Feel free to forward this request to others.

Please remember the people of Honduras in your prayers. If you have questions about this project, please contact me.

Muchas gracias!

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.
