Honduras Veterinary-Public Health Ministry

 

Since 1987, the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas' (DWTX) Honduras Veterinary-Public Health Ministry has made a profound difference in the lives of the poorest of the poor in the mountainous regions of Honduras.  Over 1,000 volunteers have come from all over the world to work with Cafe CorHorSil, an agricultural coop,  and the local school system to transform the lives of  the neglected. Two countries, two cultures and two peoples have been brought together in a powerful partnership to serve, empower, educate and encourage good health in the remote mountains of Honduras. 

What We Do

Each year a group of volunteers vaccinates thousands of animals to prevent disease, treats animal parasites to improve animal health (which also improves human health), provides personal hygiene kits to students in remote schools and provides vision screenings to these same children.  The Mission provides glasses for children identified with visual challenges.  A small group of volunteers also provides basic veterinary training and basic tools to ranchers that do not have access to veterinary care to care for ill or injured animals.  

You do not need to be a veterinarian, veterinary technician, physician or nurse to join our team.  It is very helpful if you can speak/understand Spanish, but also not required.  Please see the application page for details - our Mission is a week long (typically the week before Memorial Day Weekend) or email Heronzoo@gmail.com with your questions.  We also welcome donations and prayers!!!
