Joining Forces for the Future of Wetlands: A Success Summary on World Wetlands Day

We are proud to have been part of the event "World Wetlands Day: Human Wellbeing" organized by USAID Honduras and IUCN Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. In this significant event, we had the opportunity to discuss topics such as Climate Change Adaptation, Economic Alternatives related to livelihoods in wetlands, and Sustainable Tourism in the Wetlands of Honduras. 

At our stand, we not only revealed the positive impact of our initiatives over the years for the sustenance and protection of Wetlands but also the essence and mission of our foundation. It was a pleasure to interact, learn, and, above all, reward the participants who joined us during these special days. 

We thank everyone who came to learn more about our work and those who, day by day, join the cause to protect and value our precious wetlands.

 




Transformative Alliances: Marking the Start of a New Health Center in San Bernardo with Marks & Spencer and Seafreshgroup

We had the honor of welcoming collaborators from Marks & Spencer and Seafreshgroup. Together, we are embarked on building a new health center in San Bernardo, Namasigüe. This establishment will be a beacon of hope for 10 communities in the area. This joint effort reflects our unwavering commitment to the well-being and health of our people. 

We also had the chance to show them the fruits of our previous projects, taking them on a tour through different initiatives we have implemented to support the inhabitants of vulnerable coastal areas in southern Honduras. From vital infrastructures to sustainable development programs, each project reflects our effort to improve the living conditions of the local population. 

Luis Cattini, Aquaculture Biologist from Seafreshgroup, shared his impressions, highlighting how at Fundesur we work tirelessly to improve the quality of life of people. 


This is just the beginning of a collaboration that will undoubtedly bring positive and lasting changes to our communities.



 


We Continue with the Volunteer Program at the Green Shield Nursery!

Students from Del Valle American School continue to join our volunteer program, demonstrating their commitment and enthusiasm for the environment. This past Friday, they managed to fill 855 bags for seeds. In just 4 weekends, our volunteers have prepared more than 3,800 bags, contributing significantly to our reforestation project. 

The volunteers feel full of joy and satisfaction, knowing that their effort today will sow the seeds of a greener future for our planet. 

We are dedicated to instilling love and respect for nature in new generations. Planting trees is not only an act of love towards our environment but also has immense benefits, helps fight climate change, improves air quality, provides habitats for biodiversity, and much more. 


We thank every one of the young volunteers for their passion and effort!



 


Our First Batch of Medications is Already in the Hands of Those Who Need It Most!

We have started with the first quarterly medication delivery tour, which will cover the 10 health centers where we manage medical presence. This first tour covered 4 of the 10 establishments, this time in El Triunfo, Namasigüe, and Choluteca, specifically in the communities of Azacualpa, Nueva Concepción, San Bernardo, and El Palenque.

With an investment of more than L 280,000, this first batch includes essential medications to treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism, and epilepsy, as well as medications for allergies, migraines, fever, ophthalmic drops, dermatological creams, and antibiotics.

This effort not only ensures access to vital treatments for those who need it most but also strengthens the local health system, ensuring our communities are healthier and safer.




 


We Continue Working for Women to Have Access to Quality Medical Care During Pregnancy!

In our commitment to improving the health and well-being of vulnerable communities, we have incorporated mobile obstetric ultrasounds in remote and hard-to-reach areas.

Why ultrasounds? Because they are a window to the well-being of the baby before birth. They allow for accurate neonatal diagnosis, improving planning and safety of childbirth.

Thanks to a portable team that rotates through the health centers where we offer medical services, we have managed to perform more than 490 ultrasounds in less than a year. This means quality and timely care for future moms and their babies.

We are caring for those who need it most, ensuring a healthy start to life for the new family members!




 


We Were at the NGO Fair Organized by the Municipal Mayor's Office of El Triunfo!

An honor to share and learn from the various initiatives that support this municipality.

Thanks to the Municipal Mayor's Office for recognizing the joint work of NGOs and specifically made an honorary mention to the shrimp farming industry, which through us as their foundation, are transforming these communities with significant projects, promoting well-being and development.




We Are Very Close to the Goal, La Criba Health Unit Promises to Improve Medical Care!

Our project to build a new health unit is going full steam ahead, reaching an impressive 85% progress in just 3 and a half months. Thanks to the joint effort with FHRE The Spanish Rotarians Humanitarian Foundation, the Xunta de Galicia, and the active involvement of the beneficiary communities; we have completed the foundation, wall erection, plastering, floor casting, and roofing.

This center is the dream of more than 3,700 people from the 10 surrounding communities, who will soon have access to modern, spacious, and comfortable facilities, ensuring the quality of care they deserve.
