The pandemic has made it impossible to bring students to Honduras. We have decided that a vaccine is needed before coming to Honduras to help. Those of us who live here and work full time really miss all the people that normally help during the year.
Students have a real ability to bring things to a new level and see things in another light. This new world of ours has forced us to make internet connections to solve problems and raise funds to help with this project.
The interns from the past have been very responsive to this difficult time and have worked hard to contribute what they can to keep everything going. Meanwhile we have moved our patient education level to a full time process.
We have full time education on 75 topics running in the lobby at all times and brochures that support these videos. We look forward to the energy and time students bring here to Honduras. We have several people interested in coming as soon as travel and qualifications for the COVID pandemic. We look forward to having finances to help thes students get down here and work as soon as possible.
Due to the pandemic we are focusing our efforts in the internship programs to getting everyone vaccinated that will be serving the underpriveldged in Honduras. We feel it is imperitive the the front line workers are not contagious and are protected for their own safety.
This is a problem all over the world that is unfortunately affecting everyone who is trying to assist the under-priveledged. We have no control over this situation. Our base team continues to work at the Clinic in Honduras and we are moving forward with any funds given to prepare those desiring to do a internship to be educated in these troubling times.
We are appealing to any Medical students, Nursing students, Physcian Assistants, Nurse Practitioneers, and Pharmacy Students to come and work at the Clinica de Esperanza. This summer had to be cancelled due to COVID, travel was impossible and transportation shut down.
The program is for the future of healthcare, not only in Honduras, but in America. These students will become better healthcare providers, more compassionate, and willing to not only have their own jobs in America, but be willing to help with the underpriveledged of the world. Including the United States.
We have implemented educational measure in the waiting room to educate patients to join us in making live better.
It is time for us to take care of each other as was done in times past. Join us in changing the future.
You never really can plan for things like this pandemic hitting and disrupting all of your plans. I am seeing some positive things come out of this troubling time.Which was unexpected but wonderful.
Some of my previous interns, some in medical school, are working from home to help the folks in Honduras.They are providing funds, raising funds, and donating badly needed medical supplies to the people of Honduras. One of my interns, Allison and her family, raised the funds to help pay for the nurses badly fractured arm when she could not get the care she needed in the social system.
They are also donating for hospital supplies for the hospital that is in desparate need of help. This is a place where they have seen the conditions that the people have to face for care. They understand first hand how badly a 3rd world countries resouces are compared to the US.
Please continue helpinng these students learn and grow in their profession.
Due to the new corona virus restrictions for travel and fear of the future, the interns that were planning to come and work in Honduras are on hold pending the outcome of this current crisis.
This is very disappointing but understood as the proper way to handle the situation at this time. We are hopeful that the crazyness in this world will resolve quickly. In the meantime we will continue to care for people as they deserve to be cared for in this time.
We want to thank you for your support in this difficult climate. We plan to do what we can to help the people in need and the poor in particular as they have no recources.
