BENEFITING: National Peace Corps Association
After spending two years in Ocotepeque, Honduras as a Peace Corps Volunteer, I was pulled out of the country because of safety and security concerns. Sadly, I was unable to finish my last project before I left, the expansion of the rural health center where I had been working.
This small 5 room health center supports more than 4,000 people, with one doctor and 3 nurses, daily it is flooded by patients from the community. Before I left I was able to collaborate with the local community and the mayors office, to have blueprints for the expansion drafted. After my departure the community collected money from all community members and they have constructed the foundations of the expansion.
With this money I hope to finish the project I started in the community that I love, wont you please help me?
