Hands of Mercy Medical Scholarship Program
Despite progress in recent years, Honduras remains one of the poorest countries in the world, with most of the population living in extreme poverty.
Even before the devastation from hurricanes Eta and Iota in 2020, and the effects of Covid-19, about 50% of the population of Honduras lived on $5.50 per day or less.
One family at a time, we are working to change that.
Celeste’s family lives in Danli, Honduras. She has been volunteering with medical mission teams since she was a child, and has discovered a passion for medicine. She dreams of becoming a surgeon, and plans to dedicate her life to helping others in Honduras.
Celeste began her college and medical school journey in the Spring of 2021. Since then, we have been providing a scholarship for her tuition, books, and fees, as well as
helping her family with living expenses
so that she can focus on her studies.
But we need your help.
By supporting the scholarship program, you can help lift Celeste’s entire family out of poverty for good by providing her with an education and a career.
Your support will also allow us to expand the scholarship program so that we can help more Hondurans escape the cycle of poverty.
