High in the mountains of Honduras, a military base is located. 287 men and 3 women serve there. There are many problems with the base as the government can not afford to provide for their needs. 

One of their needs are blankets, as it is cold in the mountains. Their greatest need is protein. We have been spending alot of time at the base. Acquired their menus. Purchased food items needed at this time. 

We have started a double blind study providing the subjects with 62 grams of protein daily and the control group receives hersheys chocolate as they look the same. At the beginning of the project  we repaired the obstacle course. We tested the subjects in running, sit ups and push ups and timed them in the running of the course. The retesting is due October 25th after 3 months of altering their protein intake. 

The results will be taken to the general first, he is already aware of the project. After that review we will present the findings to the President of Honduras. This will hopefully result in a addition to more natural protein in the soldiers food on a daily basis. 

 

Serving with you,

Hello everyone! Just when we thought we were making traction, the roof came down! The building that  houses the Clinica de Esperanza in Santa Ana, Honduras is over 60 years old and made from adobe. (mud and straw). The rain came as soon as we took off the roof and brought down 3 walls, right off the bat. 

We are working hard to repair the damage. My staff has not missed a beat. In a day we reloacated everything to safer ground, the garage, bodega, dormitory and my house. We continue to see patients in the part that still has a roof. 

We have been told it will be at least a month before all the repairs can be made. Meanwhile we will keep working at providing healthcare, housing, clean water and jobs. 

 

Walking Beside you,

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,
