Donate to the SALEM HONDURAS HURRICANE RELIEF FUND today!

In 1998, Hurricane Mitch launched our Heart for Honduras dental/medical/vision Missions of Mercy. Now, after 20+ years of partnering with Honduran churches, schools, and local governments, we have friends all over Honduras. While many of the communities we serve regularly battle physical needs, they are now facing unprecedented challenges due to Covid-19 and two major hurricanes in the same month. Entire villages have been swept away in these storms leaving a devastating humanitarian crisis. This will be a long recovery process, much like the last 20+ years following Hurricane Mitch. We are committed to walking with our brothers and sisters in Honduras as long as it takes to recover and are working our US friends and partners as well as other relief organizations to send financial assistance to our people in Honduras who will begin the rebuilding process after the storm.
