BENEFITING: COMPASSION MED INTERNATIONAL INC
In West Honduras there is a tiny agricultural town called Oropoli. Oropoli has a population of about four to five thousand people and is a hub for a cluster of little towns around it.
This fundraiser is to get a clinic started in Oropoli. Basically the only healthcare anyone around Oropoli has is about 2 hours away in Yuscarán and Yuscarán's clinic is very primitive. The people in and around Oropoli will have to travel at least 3 hours to Tegucigalpa for any real emergencies and the road often becomes impassable during the rainy season because of a lack of bridges and rising creeks.
A pastor in Honduras, Moises, told me about this problem and showed me Oropoli. The people there are very kind and warm and the need out there is great.
The documentary will help inform you of all the details. The footage was taken during a medical mission trip with Compassion Med in March, 2011. All footage is from Oropoli. Compassion Med will receive all the funding for Oropoli and send it to Moises to start the clinic. To learn more about Compassion Med go to www.compassionmed.org
