Hello friends and supporters,

We had a incredible 9 days with a team of 31 nurses, professors, alumni and friends. During the week over 600 were served in medical clinics and schools. A playground was built at Juan Lindo Elementary and school supplies given. The team visited a deaf school and built them a basketball court as they can not go in the streets as in a part of town unsafe if you are deaf to approaching traffic. 

Three houses were built for the homeless and 100 bags of food (enough to feed a family of 6 for a month) . We were also able to teach and give 95 people a sawyer water filter and bucket. 

The team visited the Hospital Escuela and provided comfort to patients, medical supplies, and supplies for the new moms in the postpartum unit. 

The Clinica de Esperanza is devoted to all aspects of healthcare, food, medicine, healthcare by a provider, housing and clean water.

We continue to supply personal protection equipment thoroughout Honduras to people who can not get any from the government and funds are scarce. This time supplies were given to Doctors and Dentists, and several Brigades in Honduras to help the people. 

We also were able to visit the Autism society in Tegucigalpa and set up a way of assisting in that program in the future. We hope to provide extra manpower next year. Currently 6 therapists are treating 290 kids a week. It has also been a struggle as they need tactile stimulation and many of the toys and games are soft and can not be cleaned between so many students. They had to be locked away for now.

The pediatric dental unit is finished with construction and we hope to open in early 2022. This is a great blessing to the people of Honduras. 

Vitamins came from a donation in the states and we are currently loading up the patients with D3, zinc, and Multivitamins to assist them in fighting covid with their own defenses. 

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Hello friends:

The last of the supplies made it to the Island of Guanaja that burned down last Saturday. There were 6000 inhabitants. Most got in the ocean and were eventually rescued but they lost everything. Supplies have been gathered all week. 

I was super impressed by many things this week. First of all someone volunteered to take his trucks to the coast full of all the supplies collected from the capital. He asked for no funds for gas or the trucks. At the coast, fishermen, cargo ships and private boats volunteered their time and gas funds to take it to the island. They charged nothing to aid in this effort. 

All the people helping from different walks of life, different faiths, and different countries. It was remarkeable, hopeful, and inspiring. 

Walking Beside You,

Mosquitia is on the northern coast of Honduras on the eastern shores. Part of it extends into Nicaragua. It is a tropical rainforest and marsh that is only accessible by water and air. Its population includes indigenous groups such as the Miskito, Pech, Rama, Sumo, Garifuna, Ladino, and Creole peoples. There are approximately 100,000 inhabitants. The area is tropical, hot, and humid. 

The primary source of income is derived from lobster diving. The lobster are mostly exported to the United States. The diving is free diving, this means they dive as deep as 120 feet and come up for air. Thousands of men across this region of Honduras depend on this to feed their families. Many of the divers have been stricken with the bends-decompression sickness caused when nitrogen bubbles form in the divers bodies from coming up so far so fast. Some are paralyzed. Some are killed. 

They have also been affected by covid from boaters and exporters.  It has been extremely difficult to get into this area of Honduras and many of the supplies had to be delivered by floating it across a river or boat it in and deliver by hand. We had some help from the military in the beginning. 

Because of COVID we chose to go in and help. This has opened the doors to many needs that are basic. Housing, clean water, and medical care. We hope to help with these needs in the future. So far we have penetrated many remote areas. 

It is staggering to see how poor these indigenous folks are compared to people that we already considered poor where the clinic is located. We have our work cut out for us.

Dear friends:

The 1.1 Million masks arrived in Honduras 2 weeks ago. Already 630,00 have been deliered. This is harder than it sounds. You can not just give things to the socialized medicine system or the government and expect the supplies will not be sold on the streets the next week. 

I have personally delivered, so far to 27 Clinics, 3 dialysis centers, 7 hospitals, 4 fire houses, 6 police stations, 3 childrens homes, 7 schools, the islands of Roatan, Utilla, Gunaja and Pigeon Key. The supplies were also taken to cities all over the North coast of Honduras. To the deeply impoverished people in the Mosquito coast. A place with no roads in. We hired boats, cargo ships and box trucks. 

Maybe it was the hard way, but it is the only way. 

Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible. In the end we will of supplied 10% of a entire country. 

Walking Beside you,
