The Ware Institute of F&M Spends Spring Break with CARE

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

A group from Franklin and Marshall College spent spring break with CARE through F&M’s Ware Institute for Civic Engagement. Students held medical clinics in El Guayabo, San Juan Bosco, and La Laguna de Marilica to provide healthcare services to 1366 patients over the three days. F&M’s volunteers also took a day to observe at the Choluteca Hospital and visit a nearby orphanage where CARE has allocated meals from our food project with Kids Against Hunger. Thanks to F&M, the Ware Institute, and to all of our student volunteers for your support and service!

Vanderbilt Volunteers Spend Spring Break in Honduras

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

A group of 24 students from Vanderbilt University spent their spring break holding medical clinics in southern Honduras. The group held six medical clinics and worked with local doctors, nurses, dentists, and ophthalmologists to provide medical services to a total of 2698 residents of the communities of El Jicaro, Tular, Cacautare, Concepción de María, El Tablado, and Amapala. The group also spent a day touring the facilities of the Choluteca Hospital, where they shadowed doctors and completed a paint project. A big thanks goes out to all of our volunteers for making the week a great success and to David Johnson for serving as group leader!
