New Warehouse update!

IRC has expanded our warehouse space in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. There will be some new IRC/Mi Esperanza Offices and a new store location at the same location but a much bigger and updated Store to sell the many products that are hand made by the women of Mi Esperanza. The storage space has been expanded to hold some five containers at any given time. Many TORCH trips send containers ahead of their trips so they can distribute the many items that they have collected through the year to bring the wonderful people of Honduras.

On an upside to service, we would like to involve the groups this summer in helping to clean up and paint a little and help Mi Esperanza make a beautiful atmosphere for the Women of My Hope to learn and be educated to provide for their families in safety while preparing themselves for the work force that they so richly deserve to be a part of.  Please let Mark Connell know that you want to help.

Mammography Bus Donated

What an awesome donation from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Georgia. This bus is fully functional and self containing as a mobile medical and Mammography unit. This unit will be managed and supported by the Fundeih Foundation and the Una Libra de Amor Foundation for outlying regional hospitals that do not have the technology to give breast exams to these rural areas of the country. This fully capable bus will be staffed by Honduran Radiologist that specialize in Mammograms. It will serve some twenty regional hospitals over the next several years and will be a front line diagnosis unit for women that would not have had access to these services before. This Donation was made possible by Tom Gilroy of Millennium Health, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, IRC and the Fundeih Foundation of Honduras. This bus will be unveiled on the Saturday before mother’s day in Tegucigalpa, Honduras by the Honduran Foundations and IRC.
