WHAT WE DO

With the disaster of Hurricane Mitch in 1998, it has been estimated that Honduras regressed economically about 20 years. As a result, World Renew expects to continue its work to improve the spiritual and economic well being of low-income families in both rural and urban centers.

COUNTRY COVID UPDATE

Honduras is still recovering from hurricanes Eta and Iota that hit in November 2020. Many citizens have not been able to return to their homes and much of World Renew’s current work in the country is aimed at assisting the most affected communities by facilitating health brigades and helping rebuild livelihoods.

Amidst ongoing disaster recovery, the first round of COVID-19 vaccines have finally arrived and frontline medical personnel have been vaccinated. While Honduras is expecting more vaccines from COVAX in the coming months, those anticipated shots will reach less than 20% of the population: meaning risks remain high and any new sense of normal remains a distant ideal. Since the pandemic began, World Renew’s COVID prevention efforts have included hygiene kits and emergency food deliveries to over 5800 participants.

Pray for the purchase of more COVID-19 vaccines by the government, ongoing emergency response projects, and the fortitude of World Renew staff as they continue to share the peace and love of God in the midst of this pandemic.

The people of Honduras are more vulnerable than ever. They need our support and our prayers to weather the immediate hardships and the difficult rebuilding process ahead. Your gifts to Honduras go straight towards allowing World Renew to continue and, hopefully, scale up our programming in response. We can’t meet these needs without you.

Partners in Honduras

Alfalit offers programs in literacy, basic education, preschool, health, nutrition, and community development.

Asociación Para una Sociedad más Justa: World Renew and AJS work to promote justice and human rights from a Christian perspective. AJS is a Honduran Christian justice organization working for a society where justice prevails especially for the most vulnerable. AJS believes that this society can be achieved through just legislation, its equitable application and the participation of churches, society and the State. Therefore, AJS works with churches and community members to train them about Christian values, labor rights defense, land rights, and women’s rights. They also support Legal and Counselling Clinics in communities that had formerly been without access to legal or psychological assistance.

Diaconía Nacional de la Iglesia Cristiana Reformada de Honduras: Through Diaconía Nacional, World Renew is helping farmers learn new agricultural techniques, as well as improved ways to handle their finances. As a result, farmers are able to increase their production and buy and develop more land. World Renew and Diaconía Nacional are also training church leaders in Christian leadership so that they can coordinate various projects to meet community needs. Diaconía Nacional works in Transformational Community Development as well. This year they are developing projects in the South and Northeast zones of the country. These projects include health programs where children’s growth is monitored, and adults learn improved sanitation and nutrition. They also include community credit unions, where men and women meet together, save regularly, and provide loans to each other from their pooled savings.

Ministerios Cristianos de Mayordomía: MCM is a Christian organization, born out of the Brethren churches in Honduras. MCM has developed a successful program of income generation in Nueva Suyapa, an urban, marginal neighbourhood of the capital city Tegucigalpa. For example, teaching women community members in savings and small business management and projects such as community gardens. This partner is also working for transformational community development in its target communities.

Harvest’s main purpose is to implement in poor communities an integral mission based on Luke 2:52, which defines four growth areas (Social, Spiritual, Physical and Wisdom). Using this vision, Harvest has been training leaders and pastors all over Honduras about Wholistic Ministry. World Renew assists in organizing and training credit union members, developing training on integral mission, developing seed programs, training community leaders on health topics, and working for children’s nutrition.
