Summary

Cape CARES returned to Los Encinitos after being away for two years. With the expected and unexpected challenges of setting up a clinic in a remote area of Honduras, and the obstacles and precautions taken to traveling during a global pandemic, our incredible team said that this trip was one of the most monumental and enjoyable trips of their Cape CARES career.

Challenge

Access to health and dental care has always been limited in Honduras, however, due to COVID-19 and the influx of hospitalizations, access became nearly impossible for the past year and a half, especially for those who have a difficult time traveling long distances for health or financial reasons. For most of Cape CARES patients, our brigades are their only access to healthcare for the year, making our presence more important than ever.

Solution

After being away from our clinics for 2 years, Cape CARES returned to San Marcos and had what most volunteers called, "the most successful brigade of their Cape CARES career." Gearing up for 2022, our first task was to also return to Los Encinitos. During our clinic week, our volunteers maximized the amount of patients we saw for the week and worked to see the most vulnerable patients in the communities.

Long-Term Impact

For the first time, Cape CARES hired local town's people to work directly with the clinic team. They were vital to our operation and safe functioning of the clinic during the Covid-19 pandemic. These awesome men and women were tasked with maintaining social distancing of the patients and crowd control, proper mask etiquette, patient movement through the clinic and organization of medical records. Cape CARES has decided to continue with this practice for future brigades.
