Why support children? Thousands of children in Central America live in extreme poverty. Some children have lost one or both parents to AIDS-related illnesses. Some children work to support their families. We believe children in these situations can reach their potential if they are given shelter, clothing, food, education, and medical support. Every child deserves a future.
Why provide medical outreach? Low income communities have limited to no access to health services. We believe children, families, and underserved communities should have access to dentists, nurses, and doctors. We also believe that training professionals in the community to continue providing excellent health care and education is a must.
A Typical Service Trip Includes:
• Building single room homes to replace the cramped tin sheet shanties our family members currently live in
• Vacation bible school
• Medical outreach to the community
• Teacher certification
• Outreach to school children
H2H participants are not required to have any prior building experience. You will learn on-site. With an open heart and positive attitude, you will be amazed at what our team can learn from the people we serve and each other!
