This month, a group of six volunteers traveled to Honduras with CARE, and we had a busy week!
The group first traveled to La Laguna at San Antonio de Padua for the official inauguration of the school that Central American Relief Efforts built for the 40+ children in the community who were previously holding classes outdoors in what shade they could find. Contributions for the project came largely from Willow Valley Retirement Community and Penn Manor High School’s Young Humanitarian League. The two classrooms at the school have been named after the two major donors in appreciation of their efforts.
The team also saw over 800 patients in two days of medical clinics, presented a scholarship funded by Jack Barry to a young girl named Estefany to attend a bilingual school in Choluteca, spent an afternoon with children in a Choluteca orphanage, and celebrated in our third annual soccer tournament, an event co-sponsored by In Ian’s Boots.
