Medical and Equipment Supplies
CAMO only ships clean, unexpired supplies and all donations are thoroughly inspected before being packed and sent. CAMO also establishes the true need in Honduras before sending any supplies or equipment to assure everything received is environmentally appropriate. Each year, between 6-8 40ft shipping containers are packed full in Ohio with life-saving medical supplies and are sent to Honduras.
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.
CAMO helps these struggling mothers travel home a little easier with baby bundles, which include basic going-home necessities.
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.
Help these children receive the tools they need to receive an education!
