In late May, Elizabethtown College students joined CARE in Honduras for the very first time! Most of the volunteers are pre-med students or are in a related field of study.The team members did a phenomenal job of collecting donated items to bring to clinic sites, to donate to our partner schools, and to share with the children at the Choluteca orphanage.
We hosted three clinic days in the communities of Caridad, Pespire Centro, and Aremecina. The team saw over 1440 patients in general medicine and also took the time to tour the department of Choluteca’s only public hospital (in Choluteca City) and spend time playing with children at the orphanage in Choluteca. We finished off a week of hard work with a beach day!
