San Antonio de Cortes, Honduras – Feb. 2016
Coming soon – Feb. 13 – 27, 2016 project in San Antonio de Cortes, Honduras. The current request from the Mayor’s Office and Council is construction of three homes for the “poorest of the poor” and a school for their children, all to be completed in two weeks! It is a tall order and we need help. The needs are great and urgency is extreme!
Many families continue to live in rudely constructed shelters with dirt floors (mud when it rains), increasing illnesses and propagation of parasites, hence the request for home constructions. Many children cannot attend the over-enrolled classrooms or must walk incredible distances. Consequently, an inordinate percentage do not receive sufficient education to improve their plight beyond generational poverty. Will you help us help them?
Donate to IHB! We ask for your donations, on a sustained basis if possible, to help IHB meet these and many other urgent needs of the desperate poor of Honduras. The cost of each home is $5,200. IHB in partnership with the local town government and other entities, contribute to the cost and the recipient families contributing “sweat equity” – working with us to complete construction. Please remember that all IHB participants are volunteers who pay all of their own travel expenses, so that the greatest amount gets directly to the need.
