July 2023 Newsletter | FundeSur

Dear readers,

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our newsletter, where we share inspiring stories and projects that are making a significant difference in the lives of the communities of Choluteca, Honduras. In this edition, we will dive into three exciting initiatives that are contributing to a cleaner, healthier and brighter future in the region. From eco-stoves that improve quality of life to crucial medical donations and the construction of educational infrastructure, each of these projects represents a step forward in the search for a better tomorrow for all.


A Cleaner and Healthier Future: Ecofogones in Action in Choluteca

In collaboration with our allies from the Mirador Project, we have made a dream possible for 81 homes in the communities of El Carrizo and El Buen Samaritano, in Choluteca. The delivery of eco-stoves not only brings these communities closer to more efficient cooking, but also has a transcendental impact on people's health. By reducing the toxic smoke emitted by traditional stoves, we are contributing to reducing respiratory diseases and visual problems that have deeply affected these communities. Each eco-stove delivered allows us to build a path towards a healthier and more sustainable future.


Towards a Better Quality of Life: Erythropoietin for

Kidney Patients in Choluteca

We have made a significant contribution to the General Hospital of the South through the donation of Erythropoietin, with the aim of assisting patients suffering from chronic kidney failure in Choluteca, one of the most affected regions in Honduras. Erythropoietin is a hormone that stimulates the production of red blood cells in the bone marrow and is used to correct anemia caused by a reduced number of red blood cells or a low concentration of hemoglobin, a common situation in cases of chronic kidney failure. This donation of Erythropoietin will be of great help to correct anemia, thus improving the quality of life and the ability to perform physical activities of affected patients.


We enter the School with a Health Module in Cacao Colón!

We are excited to share great news with all of you. At the María Hercilia Herrera School, in Cacao Colón, El Triunfo, we have built a sanitary module that is transforming the lives of students and teaching staff. We know that school-age children are especially vulnerable to diseases related to lack of clean water and inadequate sanitary conditions. It is alarming that in Honduras only 12% of educational centers in the public system have access to basic hygiene services. However, we have managed to change this reality for the residents of Cacao Colón. The sanitary module that we built has three toilets, a urinal, sink, sink, washing machine, elevated tank and water pump. These facilities are creating a conducive environment for the academic development of students and teaching staff.


We enter School #47!

July 27, 2023 will be marked as a day of achievements and dreams realized in the collective memory of the community of La Bonanza, Namasigüe. With great excitement, the long-awaited inauguration of the Joaquín Romero Engineering School took place; a construction that symbolizes the perseverance and unity of a community that, since 1999, has fought tirelessly to offer its children a more accessible education. The school building will not only be a place of learning, it is also a beacon of hope and progress for the entire population. From now on, more than 90 students will directly benefit from this initiative, having the opportunity to grow and learn in an environment closer to their homes and with an infrastructure built with their needs in mind.


We finish our 6th Barber Shop

Since June 1, we have invested 66 hours of training to provide 12 young people from Los Prados I and II, in the municipality of Namasigüe, with the necessary skills to master 7 modern haircut styles. During the workshop, we held several days of free haircuts, where we had the privilege of serving more than 45 school-aged children. Seeing their smiles and renewed confidence has filled us with satisfaction. As we approach the close of this workshop, we want to thank all the young participants for their dedication and enthusiasm in each session. Your commitment has been inspiring and fills us with pride.


These stories of transformation and solidarity in Choluteca remind us of the power that collaboration and positive action have in the life of communities. Together, we are building a cleaner, healthier and brighter future for everyone. We thank our collaborators, allies and volunteers for making each of these projects possible. Let's continue working together to create a better, more inclusive world for everyone.


Sincerely,

FundeSur Team
