Making a Difference in Honduras

What began as an effort by the Virginia Hospital Center Medical Brigade to help Honduras after the devastating Hurricane Mitch in 1999 has grown to become a year-round operation. The Medical Brigade now makes 10 to 12 trips to Honduras each year including our fall trip, which brings more than 70 medical professionals to provide patient services, surgery and rehabilitation therapy. Our work also includes training community health workers and providing systems to deliver clean water to villages. Since 1999, we have treated over 100,000 patients, provided 22,500 pairs of eyeglasses, trained healthcare workers in 9 remote communities and helped deliver clean water to over 7,000 people.
