"Explore FUNDESUR's Impact on Coastal Communities in Honduras".

We welcome you to our space dedicated to showcasing FUNDESUR's commitment and work in the coastal communities of southern Honduras. In these pages, you will find heartwarming stories, educational and health programs, community development projects and much more. Join us on this journey to learn how we are working tirelessly to improve the quality of life and promote well-being in this beautiful region.


School Kits

We're ready for the school season!

We are reviewing and fine-tuning the details for the delivery of school kits to the students of the schools in the southern coastal area of Honduras. We know that education not only boosts individual growth, but also contributes to the cognitive and intellectual development of children, allowing them to unfold their full potential and better prepare them to face life.



Our Medical Team in Action

Our commitment to the coastal communities in the southern part of our country is to provide them with well-being and better living conditions. This new year, we are prepared to face medical emergencies and work on improving the quality of life. This includes ensuring good nutrition, the proper use of prescribed medications, and promoting physical activity, all of which contribute to fostering healthy lifestyle habits and increasing life expectancy in the community.


"At FUNDESUR, we are committed to improving the quality of life in the rural communities of the southern coastal region of Honduras."


Water Tank Construction in Guamerú, Namasigüe

We are pleased to support initiatives that ensure that every household in the communities of Costa Azul and Guamerú, in the municipality of Namasigüe, has access to clean water while also promoting awareness of the importance of responsible water usage and proper sanitation. This directly translates into a better quality of life for the area's residents. We have been working on this project for 45 days now, and we are currently constructing an elevated tank with a capacity of 15,000 gallons. We are close to bringing this significant benefit to these two communities.


Prenatal Vitamin Donation

We continue to work towards improving living conditions in Honduras. Thanks to World Vision Honduras, we have successfully supplied the San Lorenzo Hospital with 50 boxes of prenatal vitamins, benefiting 4,500 women of reproductive age or in the gestation period. This donation benefits both women by preventing anemia and babies by strengthening their immune systems and aiding in the development of strong bones.


We Begin with Gynecological Brigade at HGS

On Friday, January 13th, we kicked off the gynecological surgical brigade with the aim of reducing the surgical backlog that has increased at the hospital due to the pandemic. This brigade is made possible thanks to four institutions: FUNDESUR, Rotary Club Choluteca, GOSUR, and Hospital del Sur. FUNDESUR will contribute around 200,000 lempiras in medical supplies, from patient evaluations to scheduled surgeries. The goal of this brigade is to carry out 64 gynecological surgeries over 4 days, from February 10th to 11th, starting at 7 in the morning.


We're Starting Pregnant Women's Clubs!

We prepare and provide women with the necessary tools and knowledge to face childbirth. We discuss the importance of family planning, emphasize prenatal care, and offer newborn care guidance. This club is part of our "Health for Living" program, aimed at informing women in the community through talks given by our doctors at FUNDESUR.


"Because an informed mom equals a healthy baby and a united family.


We are Providing Medication to the Communities

Thanks to the support of our partner ChildFund Honduras, we have received medications for osteoarthritis, vision problems, hypertension, and seizures. These medications will be initially distributed to the 10 health centers where we have a permanent medical presence. These actions significantly contribute to improving the health and well-being of the residents in the southern coastal region of Honduras


We Work Towards Healthier Communities

Our goal is to improve the health, well-being, and productivity of remote communities in the southern part of our country. Our medical team, along with a group of nutritionists from the UNAH (National Autonomous University of Honduras) on social service, conducted a medical brigade in the community of Isla Boca del Río Viejo, Marcovia. We provided 51 general medical consultations, including prescriptions and medications, to the public. At the same time, we offered 49 nutritional assessments, measuring height, weight, arm circumference, and growth indicators, followed by the distribution of the appropriate supplements.
