Who we are
Project Honduras is a group of people working on projects to support the people of Honduras. United by a sense of service to God, Project Honduras has been growing in size. Its participants consist primarily from the members of the Christian Church of Salt Lake, its sister church the International Church of Christ in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and friends and family.
David and Patricia Medina organized a service trip to Honduras in 2015. They invited people from their church, as well as friends and family, to join them. Eleven people visited a school for visually impaired students, a public hospital’s maternity ward, and a girls’ orphanage.
In the subsequent year, Project Honduras experienced a significant growth, with the number of participants increasing to 20. The true spirit of service that the first group exhibited attracted more friends and family to participate. During that trip, a two-room elementary school, a public hospital, and a home for abused girls were visited and served.
To date, Project Honduras has made 7 service trips to Honduras. Despite the challenges posed by Covid restrictions, Project Honduras will persist in its mission to visit various locations and provide assistance, even if it means overcoming obstacles to access public hospitals. The goal is to establish strong connections. Trips usually include visits to rural schools, orphanages, and a medical team that travels with them. The international airport in Honduras has moved to the city of Comayagua. This change has led to the establishment of new connections with the local church and an orphanage for boys.
Currently, Project Honduras is in the planning phase of another trip to happen in the Summer of 2024. The amount of preparation that goes into such a trip is huge, and all efforts are done by volunteers. Project Honduras is a charity 501 organization and as such is able to provide receipts for tax purposes upon request.
