Honduras (MNN) — Some studies say as few as 800,000 people in Honduras have access to adequate healthcare. Roughly three quarters of Hondurans don't have access to even the country's most basic medical plan.
As a result of this discrepancy, CURE International has been providing medical care throughout the country for years. In 2004, CURE's Medical Director Dr. Gustavo Vasquez began operating weekly clinics in area hospitals, with plans to build a CURE hospital of their own, in time.
Finally, in January of 2009, the new hospital was built and ready for business. Within the first three months, the staff had treated over 1,200 children. Not even two years later, the 20-bed hospital has performed more than 1,600 surgeries and has seen over 13,000 patients.
The CURE Honduras hospital has not only been an asset to those seeking healthcare, but has provided spiritual welfare as well. CURE is dedicated to the teaching of Christ, and the staff readily pray and share the Gospel with their patients. The hospital is a beacon for healing almost every way you look at it.
The hospital has brought joy and health to many, but now you can help them reach thousands more. A $200,000 matching grant is now in effect so you can help this blossoming hospital. That means every dollar you give to CURE will be doubled up to $200,000.
Give the gift of healing this Christmas by blessing the many Hondurans in need. Visit cure.org to help today.
