I have the opportunity to participate as a volunteer in a Trent University student health and educational brigade with a Peterborough non-profit organization called Friends of Honduran Children (www.honduranchildren.com).  Our team of thirty people is comprised of students in Nursing, Education and Psychology, along with our clinical instructors, a past student mentor, and two adult supports. Honduras is considered the poorest country in Latin America. We will be visiting remote villages providing health promotion education in areas where clean water is a concern.

According to the World Health Organization It is estimated that 30.1 % of the population in Honduras receive no health care, 83 per cent are uninsured and many people in rural regions (54%) are excluded completely from health care services.

Volunteers with Friends of Honduran Children willingly accept the personal financial responsibilities of their own flights, food and accommodation.  However, volunteers are asked to raise additional funds to cover the cost of construction projects, educational support materials, food and other valuable supplies.  We will also be building safe cook stoves to eliminate smoke in the homes, latrines, and wash stands for families in the rural areas of Honduras. All of these things are so important to the overall health of the families living in these areas. Your support will go directly to our work in Honduras.  Any amount can make a big impact!  Income tax deductible receipts for donations over $20 will be mailed promptly
