THE STORY:

As many of you know, I’ve served the Latino immigrant population for years with everything from food and rental assistance to finding grants for special needs children.  I actually started on this path in 1993 when I first worked with homeless men in Philadelphia. I was the only shelter worker who could speak Spanish and since then I have always sought out ways to help people. (Or you might say it started when I was born in La Paz, Bolivia, but that’s another story).  Since moving to Baltimore about 12 years ago I have dreamed of working on BOTH sides of the border using my language skills and passion in order to address some basic needs and improve people’s lives.

This year I’ve been invited, at my son’s pediatrician’s urging, to participate in a Health Brigade to Rural Honduras.  OCHO has been partnering with a rural village since 2000 following the devastating Hurricane Mitch.  Each year this Baltimore non-profit sends down a committed team of volunteers, hand picked students, and medical staff.  Since that first journey they’ve created a health clinic, built a clean-water filtration system, and have treated thousands of villagers lacking in basic health care.   With your donation, I’ll be able to assist medical staff with translation, health education outreach, the construction of a new health clinic, and maybe even document some of the work with my camera.  We expect to serve between 2500 – 3000 people in Atíma, Honduras and the surrounding countryside.  I’m thrilled and anxious about the trip at the same time!

Any one who knows me knows that I hate to ask for things, and especially money.  However, I need to raise $1,600 total in order to pay for my end of the trip.  This opportunity will fulfill my dream of more deeply serving families like the one’s I help here--but in their own land. It would be far too easy for me to sit back in my comfortable life in Baltimore, secure in my role as a “helper”.  But I believe that I need to understand and experience the conditions that drive my clients here.   The linguistic, cultural, and economic knowledge I gain will help guide the work that I have devoted myself to here.  This is amazing work, but I need help your to get there.  June 21st seems far off but will be here in a flash.  Please do help.
