This Veterinary Medicine & Public Health mission trip to Honduras has been going on for 32 years. Father Jay has been on this trip 11 times. And Grace Church has participated for the past 5 years. This year, Grace sent five missionaries on this mission.
The central location for this mission is in Siguatepeque, about halfway between Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula.
Approximately 50 people serve on this mission annually: 10 on the public health team, and 8 each on five veterinary teams.
The public health team coordinates with public schools in and around Siguatepeque to provide vision screening for children.
In 2019, over 2000 children were screened. Over 200 of them will now receive glasses to help them see.
The veterinary teams spread out to over 20 different villages in the mountains surrounding Siguatepeque.
In 2019, they treated over 6000 animals in just four days.
