Thank you for your support to the poor hospitals in Honduras during the COVID supply crisis. We seem to be able to obtain an adequate amount of supplies at this time.
The help you provided during this extremely difficult time gave people what they needed to get through this situation. With the funds we were able to provide help for 8 agencies and the Northern coast of Honduras. This was a game changer for so many individuals that were unable to get help elsewhere.
We have decided to retire this project to move on to helping the people still struggling with no healthcare in Honduras.
The highest priority at this time is to be sure people have their basic needs met. Food, Shelther and Healthcare.
Thank you for your continued support to our home project; Clinica de Esperanza/Clinic of Hope.
The Elderly have been hit hard. The nursing home connected to the Hospital only has one bathroom for each long hallway. Most of the patients are not ambulatory. Many of the healthcare providers quit because of the fear of COVID.
Friday we were able to bring bedside commodes, wheelchairs, and walkers so these folks that can not take care of themselves or get to the bathroom can use the potty chairs next to their bed or be wheeled in a wheelchair when they can not walk. It is very frustrating and messy we you can not make it to the bathroom.
We also want time to visit them as they are very lonely. We put in permission slips while we were there and hopefully they will allow it. Thank you for making this possible.
Walking beside you,

A day in the life of a patient
By Christian Andino - employee
Mrs. Esperanza by Christian Andino.
Today this lady visited the clinic. She comes regularly to the clinic for her medication, mostly for hypertension. She tells us that she walks about 70 minutes to the bus and then rides the bus for another 75 minutes to make the trip.
Previously, she attended a different clinic near her community but they do not have her medicine and she can not afford it. She said she was very happy with the medicine and the good care she receives here at the Clinica de Esperanza. It is very cool that her name is Esperanza which means hope, the same as the clinic.
We work very hard to provide hope to those that are seeking hope. We appreciate all of you that make that happen.
