Successful Mission Trip

A group of nine NY/HELP volunteers spent two weeks between July 26 and August 7, 2010 working with the people in the mountainous communities around La Laguna, near Yoro in northern Honduras. The volunteers on this trip included a doctor, two medical students, a math teacher, a Spanish teacher, a college freshman (in the fall) and a family of three.


We worked with the community on improvements on the clinic, especially a new roof, fencing in the clinic property and planting trees. Other projects included helping to build lorena stoves and school visits. We met with the Tribal Council and discussed future plans and the relationship between NY/HELP and the Mataderos Tribe.
