My family vacationed in Roatan, Honduras in December 2015.  Before departing on our trip we agreed that we wanted to work with a local non-profit while we were on the island.  Roatan has one of the highest populations of families with HIV/AIDS.  We worked with Familias Saludables – “Healthy Families” in November to gather a list of supplies they needed for their patients.  Familias Saludables is a non-profit, non-denominational organization devoted to fighting the AIDS epidemic on Roatan. Their major focus is on reducing the incidence of mother-to-child transmission of the virus both at birth and via breast milk. They run clinics for pregnant women, assign trained home visitors for mothers living with HIV/AIDS, provide palliative services and when available, they provide infant formula, medications and a host of supplies to families struggling to cope with this disease.  

We were able to raise $2,100 through online fundraising that helped us sponsor two kids to attend school in 2016 as well as bring down the following supplies to Roatan with us:

  • Children’s Story & Coloring Books (40)
    • K-12 Workbooks (7)
    • Flashcards (11)
    • First 100 Words Book (2)
    • Dry Erase Markers (80)
    • Dry Erase Board Cleaner (5)
    • Sidewalk Chalk (36)
    • Crayons (120)
    • Neosporin (12)
    • Children’s Liquid Tylenol (16)
    • Children’s Vitamins (720)
    • Adult Tylenol/Ibuprofen (3,000)
    • Band-Aids (180)
    • Antacids (180)
    • Anti-Diarrheal (800)

The supplies were delivered on December 26th, 2015.
