What happens when there is a family crisis like an accident, or loss of work, or an unexpected illness? These things happen everywhere but in rural western Honduras there is no safety net other than the love and support of others.
In the small communities there is a much stronger sense of family and community that we personally have come to love and appreciate. But many times that is not enough to make ends meet even under normal conditions. Lenca families willingly pool their resources and sacrifices together to help not only their own families but others who are struggling. But no matter how strong the sense of family and community there are not economic resources to go around under more difficult circumstances.
So, through our foundation, we come alongside families in crisis situations to extend short term assistance with basic needs like food and medicine coupled with a lot of prayer. We work closely with local pastors and community leaders to identify the families in crisis and make sure the assistance is offered in a healthy, sustainable way.
Through prayer and financial support you can be the hands and feet of Jesus in western Honduras with us. If you would like to learn more please contact us. If you would like to donate please visit our donate page and designate your donation to FHD Family Crisis Care Fund.
