ChildFund International in Honduras

Nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, with tropical mountains, warm beaches and friendly people, Honduras is the second-poorest nation in Central America.

High unemployment and economic disparity have triggered rapidly rising crime rates. The nearly constant threat of natural disasters from hurricanes to earthquakes makes life hard for Honduran people, particularly the poorer populations located in higher-risk areas. The country's terrain and inequities make it difficult to build roads, limiting access to basic services. Poverty in Honduras is a problem that affects many.

ChildFund has served children in Honduras since 1982.
