Clinica Montaña de Esperanza
How Mountain of Hope Began
In the early 1990’s, members of St. Peter’s in Lake Mary were in Honduras helping to build a church. A woman approached one of the missionaries and said: “our children are sick; they’re dying. They need doctors and medicine”.
That simple statement changed heart, a mission, and an entire village.
When they returned to America, they began running ads for medical people to volunteer to travel to a remote village in Honduras to provide medical care to people with no access to healthcare.
First a doctor responded, then a dentist. Eventually about 60 people signed on, and thus began an over 20 year outreach to Quince de Enero. The first week of the mission they treated over 3,000 people, in a village without electricity or running water.
Clearly, 1 week a year was not going to be enough to successfully treat these villagers.
Here’s the challenge: Currently, the total budget for the clinic comes from a handful of people, allowing the clinic to operate 2 days per week. Our goal is to get back to 7 days a week. We are looking for 300 people who will donate $600. This will allow us to reopen on a full time basis.
