Madison Rotarians have been traveling to Honduras since 2015 to provide eyeglasses and medical eye care to people in remote mountain regions of southern Honduras.
In 2008, we took the first small duffel bag full of toothbrushes and dental supplies.
Every project needs a coordinator and our Honduras Project needs Carolina.
As part of our annual Honduras humanitarian mission, we visit homes of previous EcoStove recipients to ensure the stoves are working properly.
Ceilings and walls are covered with thick layers of creosote. Lingering smoke makes it hard to see and even harder to breathe, causing long-term respiratory problems.
These ladies are just a few of our many EcoStove recipients.
Duffel bags, of course!! While our primary mission to Honduras may have started with electrical work and EcoStoves, we have since greatly expanded our humanitarian service.
Rotarian and Optometrist Michael St.Peter returned this year with our International Team to perform eye exams and distribute glasses to some very grateful folks in Choluteca.
