THE STORY:

We are raising funds to support a missions trip so we may bring spiritual and emotional relief to the town of La Ceiba, Honduras. We plan to visit communities; bring needed supplies, clothing, medical equipment, school supplies, etc. Why?
  • Honduras has one of the highest murder rates of any country in the world. According to the latest report from the U.N. Office of Drugs and Crime, the Central American nation saw 90.4 homicides per 100,000 people in 2012.*
  • Honduras is a hotbed for drug trafficking and human trafficking.*
  • About 60 percent of the population living below the poverty line making Honduras the second poorest country in Central America. †
  • More than eight percent of children under five years old are underweight, and the degree of risk for infectious diseases such as dengue fever, malaria, bacterial diarrhea, hepatitis A, and typhoid fever is high. ‡
  • According to UNICEF, between 26,000 and 33,000 of Hondurans of all ages are living with HIV.
