The situation in Honduras is critical. It was super hard to make the decision to close the clinic temporarily as no one could get to the clinic. We are in a policed state where today the people are only allowed out of their homes once every 2 weeks. They could not get to the clinic as they could not get past the police posts on the roads.
This week we made the decision to pack up all our clinic supplies and take them to the hospital where they are desparate and dealing with the bulk of the effects of the COVID-19. We will deal with replacing ours at a later date. We had gloves, scrubs and various medical supplies.
Next week we hope we can get supplies through to Honduras from the States. We will continue to raise funds to feed folks as starving is definitely not healthy.
Pray for the poor, pray for the resources to come to us.
We have been working fast and furiously to get supplies to the largest teaching hospital in Central America, The Hospital Escuela. They do not have the resources to protect the health care workers who are dealing daily with the COVID-19 outbreak.
Just this week alone, we have been able to provide for several key areas in the hospital. Consider the fear of taking care of these patients to begin with and add to that, there is no protective equipment. Yet they show up to work and do their jobs like so many other healthcare workers all over the globe.
When this goal is accomplished we will start sending ventolators in for the critically ill patients. We project that 30% of the population will be lost. Thanks in advance for helping fellow human beings.
The pictures speak for themselves.
