CHHF's purpose is to render free medical, dental, and ophthalmic services to the poor and needy in the Department of Colon, Honduras. The challenge is to also offer health education regarding disease prevention, sanitation, and nutrition. The aim is to work with selected active people in the community, side by side, teaching and training them to advance their standards of health care.
"The CHHF mission trip to Limón was exceptionally well-organized. I was so impressed with how every detail was taken care of and how smoothly things went. It allowed us to really focus on providing medical care to the people there. I am grateful for the opportunity that was presented to me to give to people in such need of medical help. This was an experience I’ll always remember."
Dr. Roy Berry
"We were completely amazed at the quality of the work being done in this region of Honduras and the difference CHHF is making in the health and well being of the people. It felt great to work as part of a team carrying on the tradition started by Dr. Gibson years ago. The team leaders were outstanding and we were able to focus on the work we came to do instead of the daily needs of transportation and food."
The Carolina Honduras Health Foundation was begun by Dr. Henry W. Gibson, MD of Barnwell, SC. In 1987 he made his first trip to Honduras and continued to do so until his passing in 2014.
