    ABOUT THE CAROLINA HONDURAS HEALTH FOUNDATION:

    The Carolina Honduras Health Foundation (CHHF) was formed in South Carolina as a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization in 1995 to provide free medical, dental, ophthalmic care to the poor and needy along the Caribbean Mosquito Coast and inland to nearby mountains in the Department of Colon, Honduras. This includes the village of Limón, 23 hamlets, and a rural area encompassing 633.4 square kilometers. In 2014 CHHF began serving an additional 6 hamlets in the Chapagua area near Trujillo, with a population of about 6,000. Volunteer teams also travel to distant villages and set up clinics in schools or churches in order to reach some who have no opportunity to receive medical care.

    As the second poorest country in the Americas, Honduras has limited medical care throughout the country; vast areas have little access to general medical care and no access to specialized services. With a population in excess of 8 million, 64 percent live in poverty ($2 per day per person) and 36 percent in extreme poverty. In the areas served by the Carolina Honduras Health Foundation, the percentage living in extreme poverty is even higher.

    Approximately 19 volunteer teams from the US serve the CHHF clinics in Honduras during the months of February through October annually.

    CHHF staff includes one half-time position in the United States responsible for financial management and 9 positions in Honduras reporting to the Director of Honduran Operations. In addition volunteers help with the oversight and management of various programs.

    MISSION, VISION AND VALUES STATEMENTS:

    The following was adopted by the Board of Directors in May 2018.

    Mission Statement – “The mission of the Carolina Honduras Health Foundation (CHHF) is to establish and maintain centers for providing medical, dental and ophthalmic health care services in the Department of Colon, Honduras. Through these centers, CHHF is working with community leaders in local villages to develop and promote programs designed to improve overall community health.”

    Vision Statement“Working in partnership with an involved local community, CHHF supports the provision of quality health care for all citizens of the Department of Colon, Honduras in a manner that preserves individual dignity, sustainability, and commitment to continuous quality improvement, community engagement and growth”

    Core Values – In recognition that our work can only be satisfactorily accomplished in partnership with others, we list these core values:

    • Our supporters and volunteers are the quintessence of our organization.

    • Our US and Honduran partners are vital to the success of our mission and are depended upon to provide direction to our work.

    • In all things and in all ways we will treat others with dignity and respect.

    • We will encourage and support partnerships with the communities in which we work.

    • We will endeavor to be transparent in all we do through communications with our staff, constituents, supporters and volunteers.
