We Served 12,000 People Last Year
Did you know that last year over 12,000 people came to our clinics to restore their health and recover from illness or injury?
That is 12,000 people who were able to go back to work providing for their families, caring for their kids, or kids that were able to continue their education – sometimes walking many miles to get the help they need.
24 Cents To Save A Life
All it takes is just 24 cents to treat one person infested with parasites. That means 24 cents can literally save a life.
The Board also realizes that an education program is needed to combat this health issue; our Community Development and Education employee has already begun by having classes in the local schools.
Map of Honduras
The Limón Clinic is the primary facility operated by CHHF. The clinic is located directly on the Caribbean in the village of Limón, Department of Colon, Honduras. The clinic has exam rooms, dental facilities, a laboratory, and a pharmacy on the lower level. The upstairs living area includes a great room, kitchen, 8 bedrooms with a total of 24 beds, and 4 baths. Volunteers staff the clinic every other week except during the rainy season of November, December, and January. The clinic has a small school bus which is used to bring patients to the clinic from nearby villages. At times teams use the school bus to serve patients in the home villages.
Built in 2000, the Icoteas Clinic is a small satellite clinic located in the village of Icoteas, about 45 minutes east of Limón. The clinic has 3 exam rooms, and a pharmacy in a 900 square foot building. Teams typically make a day trip to the clinic from Limón.
Whispering Hope Clinic
In 2015 CHHF began staffing the Whispering Hope Clinic, founded by Missionary Health Service and located in the village of Chapagua near Trujillo. CHHF has accepted this clinic as part of its network of clinics in Honduras. Teams are going to Whispering Hope for 1-2 days during their week in Honduras or it can be scheduled separately from the Limón Clinic.
