In partnership with OCHO, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), & the Honduran Health Ministry, the village of Atima will receive a NEW, LARGER community clinic!
Help OCHO Equip this Clinic...
$25 :: Stethoscope
$50 :: Newborn scale or a nebulizer
$100 :: Blood-pressure monitor
In 2000 (following the destruction of Hurricane Mitch), our medical brigade team provided much-needed health services to thousands of chronically-neglected patients in the remote village of Atima (Santa Barbara, Honduras). During that clinic, it was clear that the ailments of the Atima community had existed long before Hurricane Mitch had made matters worse.
So, our brigade returned the following June (and every year since), allowing us to improve our care and develop relationships among the community.
Public health projects have targeted clean air, clean water, and education.
Following our collaborative effort of building a water filtration system in Atima, we have turned our attention to improving healthcare capacity in the area.
To ensure the clinic is able to provide healthcare for the tens of thousands living in the farming communities, OCHO will provide $100,000 worth of equipment to this new clinic. Help OCHO make this vision of sustainable care in rural Honduras into a reality.
