The main focus of Healthy Niños Honduras is to help children and families that are suffering from malnutrition in Honduras. Healthy Niños Honduras (HNH) is a continuation of the work of promoting community health that the MAMA Project began in Honduras over 30 years ago.
Malnutrition is one of the main problems in developing countries, affecting mostly children under five years of age, compromising their immune system and leading them to infectious diseases or death in many cases. Many malnourished children grow up with physical or mental disabilities that forever limit their potential.
Healthy Niños runs a nutrition center in Honduras. We use a very inexpensive technology program where children and families can recover from malnutrition in 1-3 months with medical care, good hygiene, nutritious food, and safe water. It’s an act of showing the love of Jesus through meeting basic needs and giving children the chance at surviving and thriving.
Every year, HNH sends ten or more mission teams to work in the remote areas of Honduras. Through the groups, Healthy Niños is able to provide 15,000 medical consultations in 65 communities. We also provide concrete floors and water filtration systems to families. We distribute 1.5 million deworming medications and more than 500,000 prenatal vitamins, thanks to our partners, The Worm Project and Vitamin Angels.
The mission teams offer first-hand experience as the team members can see the reality of the families in Honduras, work with them, and help them to break the malnutrition cycle. Healthy Niños is in constant contact with the communities providing them education and help for better living conditions.
Due to COVID-19 and the recent hurricanes that devastated much of Honduras, we have been unable to send teams in the past ten months. However, our Honduran staff has been busy distributing food to the communities in need. More than 6,000 people received food through HNH. The Honduran staff is ready to carry on the medical and dental brigades as well.
We are also able to restart the warehouse construction project in Honduras. This building will be 3,000 square feet in size and will help us with all of our Honduran operations. The completed warehouse will give us the ability to store and distribute food and materials more easily to the communities in need.
We are grateful for the opportunities to continue to serve the people in Honduras by providing hope and love, in Jesus’s name. Thank you for the partnership with Mosaic Conference.
