Heading to Honduras

Organized by: Daniel Renzi

THE STORY:

I am joining a medical mission in Honduras, where we will provide medical and dental care free of charge. Honduras has the highest murder rate on Earth, and the majority of the population lives in squalid poverty without basics such as parasite-free drinking water, access to medicine, or food with decent nutritional value.

We are traveling with thousands of dollars' worth of medicine such as antibiotics, blood pressure treatments, fluoride treatments for children's teeth, and breathing treatments for people with COPD or asthma. COPD is the leading cause of death and illness worldwide. We are also bringing basics such as vitamins, which can prevent many of their typical health problems.

Most importantly, we are bringing materials translated in Spanish to help us educate the residents about how to take care of themselves after we have left.

There is a saying that "God will provide" whatever we really need. He already has. There is enough food, water, and medicine on Earth for everybody. It is up to us to give to to each other where it is needed.

We have poverty here in America, we have people who struggle to find medical care, and they deserve attention as much as anyone else around the world. As a nurse at a public community hospital, I work with uninsured people every day. Where we are going in Honduras, there are no community hospitals, no Emergency Rooms where the poor can walk in and ask for help. These people have access to virtually nothing. This care can, and will, change people's lives.
