Friends Gala: La Fiesta was a smashing success!
In a fabulous evening of Latin-inspired cocktails and food, a silent and live auction, IndyCar rides, and the upbeat music of Tropicante, FHC’s Friends Gala 2018 raised more than $80,000! More than a third of that was donated during our live Fund-a-Need campaign for FHC’s Educational Fund for Sister Maria Rosa’s children and young adults in Honduras. Some highlights included Cato’s Cigar Bar and Mae’s Wine Pull and the presence of Norely and Andrea, two young Honduran women studying here in the United States. Gracias for your attendance. We are humbled by your heartfelt generosity!
FHC/CHIPA Medical Brigade
In September five healthcare providers with five helpers, a local pharmacist, and two interpreters saw 926 patients in 4 1/2 days of medical brigades in four mountain villages of Honduras, plus the Santa Rosa de Lima Clinic at Nuevo Paraíso. They distributed more than $8,000 in medications, reading glasses, vitamins, ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and parasite medications. Dr. John Stevens and Dr. Jeffrey Bodle educated clinic physicians on asthma and neurological disorders and Dr. Stevens met with four pediatric pulmonologists to establish the first Cystic Fibrosis Clinic in Honduras!
YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK ON THE SANTIAGO APOSTOL HOMES!
Construction has begun on the expansion and refurbishing of SAN's two homes for young men at Nuevo Paraíso! With proceeds from our FHC online fundraiser this past Spring, SAN will add two new bedrooms and two new baths to Santiago Apostol #2 to accommodate more adolescent boys transitioning into the program. The project also covers new flooring and ceiling work on the other home, Santiago Apostol #1. THANK YOU for your generous help in improving living conditions for these boys!
Gracias and Thank You!
Thanks to your generosity, our online fundraiser raised $16,282 to renovate the Santiago Apostol homes and improve the lives of two dozen Honduran teenage boys!
