MUCHAS GRACIAS...from the generosity of so many of you, $10,000 was wire transferred (without a fee!) to Honduras earlier this week.
$5,000 was given to Sociedad Amigos de los Ninos for medicine and food for those in need visiting the Santa Rosa de Lima Clinic at Nuevo Paraiso.
$5,000 was given to ACOES for food for their students who are normally fed 2 meals a day at school, ACOES is delivering food to the homes of students. ACOES Founder and Director Padre Patricio emailed me this note today...
Thank you for having a good help in the mission that we have in Honduras.
In www.acoes.org you will find information about what we do. We try to support the poorest families in the Christian education of their children. are currently more than eleven thousand students we help, thank God. We also received voluntary collaborators from other countries what sojourn with us. Thank you for your generous donation and hope to meet you one day these lands.
From a request I received from St. Charles Parish in Tacoma, Washington who has been doing medical brigades at Nuevo for years (they usually come the week after we are in Honduras in January), Holy Family was able to contribute $2,000 along with 4 other groups to provide $10,000 for emergency medicine to many of the villages around Nuevo Paraiso.
I am still accepting donations for another wire transfer. If you are in a position to donate, please make your check payable to HOLY FAMILY CHURCH and mail it to me...

Again, thanks for helping those most in need in Honduras!
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.
