Each day, 18 babies on average are born in the public hospital in Santa Rosa de Copán, Honduras. Many mothers lack funds to pay for proper clothing for their newborn and cannot leave the hospital because they cannot afford the bus home.

- 2 cloth diapers
- 2 diaper pins
- 1 receiving blanket (not knitted)
- 2 infant t-shirts (not onesies)
- 2 items such as baby lotion, baby brush, or comb (no powder)
Instructions: Wrap supplies in blanket, secure with diaper pins.
CAMO’s dental program serves over 26,000 children a year. Each month, CAMO sends 6 brigades to remote Honduran villages to teach children about dental hygiene and to provide yearly check-ups, cleanings, fillings and dental kits. Help equip children in Honduras with the essentials necessary for basic dental health.
Central American Medical Outreach servers one of the poorest regions of Honduras, where many children cannot attend school because the family must decide between buying food or buying notebooks and pencils.
