Two main programs support health in our sister communities:
Health Clinic (San Jose)
HH built a health clinic in San Jose de Machigua, a 3-4 hour hike one-way from Yoro. The remote location is a barrier to regular and emergency health and medical care. This clinic is staffed by a local nurse, Monday through Friday, and provides preventive and urgent care. HH supports the salary, building maintenance, and bring medications to stock the clinic at least twice per year.
Nutrition Programs (San Jose and Plan Grande)
HH supports two nutrition programs for children 0-5 years old in San Jose and Plan Grande. The program provides 2-3 nutritious meals each week and educates families on nutrition in the early years. HH supports the program by covering food costs and providing a stipend for community leaders who run the program.
