LIFE-TRANSFORMING SURGERIES, HONDURAS

Because of severe poverty and the absence of qualified specialists, the hope of corrective surgery remains an impossible dream for many families living in remote regions in Honduras, one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Our volunteers bring hope and healing by providing surgical and clinical services for those without access to care. Since 2014, we have treated 601 patients and performed 200 surgical procedures.
