Name of Solicitor: Active community members from El Llano and surrounding communities along with Dr. Keila (Municipal Doctor and Community Development Health Liaison).
Location of Project: The village of El Llano
The current health center was built approximately 21 years ago and has not undergone any remodeling since then. The physical structure has deteriorated as well as being contaminated by rodents such as bats and their feces. For this reason, we believe that the restoration of the ceiling is urgent to prevent any further health problems caused to patients or employees by this contaminated environment. Also, the restoration of the doors is vital to increase the security of the unit.
Supervisor’s Note: Heart to Honduras started to work with Dr. Keila in 2018 as she is a local Honduran doctor hired by the municipality to coordinate municipal health efforts. Since she works in this field full time she is able to assess and coordinate holistic improvements to the health care available in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Yojoa. We are excited to be collaborating with her and her efforts to improve the health and well-being of the people in this region.
Improve the quality of attention to patients who come to this unit for a consult. As well as preserving health and security via the eradication of contamination by replacing the current drop ceiling and main doors.
