So far in 2015, Central American Relief Efforts has treated over 10,000 patients with the efforts of volunteer medical mission teams from the U.S., but many more Hondurans lack access to healthcare services, including pharmaceuticals.
One ongoing program that we run is a self-sustaining pharmacy project. We currently have five operating self-sustaining pharmacies in our workzone, which have been running smoothly and increasing access to medicine in rural areas for several years. The pharmacies have enabled locals to find the medicines they need in their own community for a reasonable price.
To continue to expand our reach and increase accessibility of medicines in our workzone, we are now asking for your help to fund five additional pharmacies to be placed in our partner communities –rural areas in southern Honduras — to serve those with otherwise limited access to purchase even the most basic medicines, like cough syrup and allergy medication. Learn more about our self-sustaining pharmacies and contribute any amount to the project by following the link to our Crowrise page!
Here’s the good news — with crowdfunding, no donation is too small! Whether you are able to donate $10 or $10,000, your contribution adds to our success! Crowdfunding relies on many people making (mostly small) contributions. You can also help us by spreading the word – so please spread the word via email, post the link to Facebook, text your friends…again, crowdfunding is based on the support of many people coming together to make big things happen!
Because our pharmacies are self-sustaining, your contribution will purchase an initial stock of medication, which, when sold, will generate the money to restock the medicine in the pharmacy.
