- Thank You!
The Honduras Veterinary and Vision team did not have our annual trip in May, thanks to Covid-19. However, we were still able to show our love and support for the Hondurans we have come to know and love!
In May 2020 we provided food for 42 families of Santiago Apostol Episcopal Church in Siguatepeque. Here are some of the recipients of the generosity from our mission team members:
In August 2020, we decided to provide a scholarship to 6-year-old Fernando so that he would be able to attend school this year. Here is a short video from Fernando and a copy of his latest report card! Without our support, Fernando would not be attending school this year.
In the past few years, we have provided rice and beans to the rural schools in communities we visit. Since many of the remote schools are not in session, we provided rice and beans to those local communities to help those families during these hard times
In the aftermath of Hurricane Iota, we provided 100 pounds of rice and 100 pounds of beans to help support 24 families that had to be evacuated because of the storm.
Each year a group of volunteers vaccinates thousands of animals to prevent disease, treats animal parasites to improve animal health (which also improves human health), provides personal hygiene kits to students in remote schools and provides vision screenings to these same children. The Mission provides glasses for children identified with visual challenges. A small group of volunteers also provides basic veterinary training and basic tools to ranchers that do not have access to veterinary care to care for ill or injured animals.
You do not need to be a veterinarian, veterinary technician, physician or nurse to join our team. It is very helpful if you can speak/understand Spanish, but also not required. Please see the application page for details - our Mission is a week long (typically the week before Memorial Day Weekend) or email Heronzoo@gmail.com with your questions. We also welcome donations and prayers!!!
Come Serve with us.
