Your Charitable Donation Saves Lives

Our volunteers pay for their own travel and shared team expenses on mission trips.  Your donations help maintain the facilities and equipment and help to fund other programs in support of Honduran families such as the Education Program, Recycling Program, Community Development, and the Patient Medical Referral Program. 

I am grateful for the care that CHHF takes of the teams. The new porch fans, the new rocking chairs, the consistently hot showers are luxuries that are so wonderful at the end of a long day’s work. I think we made a big difference in one of my patients’ lives. She presented with deep bruising under her eyes and I became concerned. I asked Susan to see her, and we found that she had been falling at least once a month. On further questioning, she admitted to having seizures and the dose of her seizure med had never been changed. We were able to add another medication to help bring the seizures under better control. That was a good feeling, to have helped her.
