Honduras

Project Overview

GOAL: The Community of Christ Health Ministries Association (HMA) needs $10,000 to provide reliable transportation for Saira; a health care provider in rural Honduras.

HMA has employed a local Honduran Nurse Practitioner named Saira to provide care to some of the most remote villages in Honduras. Saira runs a small clinic out of the front of her house serving many in the area who are unable to reach other clinics.

Saira also travels to other remote villages where she has established herself as a primary care provider for several communities. She treats everything from wounds, burns, to diabetes, hypertension, and a variety of infections. She also helps in providing preventative dental care. HMA sponsors medical mission trips that include physicians and other healthcare providers.

The medical teams often stay on the La Buena Fe grounds and work alongside Saira to treat acute issues, but also to establish new patients that will need chronic care. Working alongside Saira allows the visiting physicians to initiate chronic care medications that otherwise would not be able to be used.

Saira is able to follow patients started on chronic medications and routinely monitor their progress. Saira needs a four wheel drive, reliable, vehicle in order to reach some of the remote communities.

HMA needs $10,000 to purchase such a vehicle.

Please make a donation and help Saira provide medical assistance in rural Honduras.
