FC: KHISH Key Humanitarian Initiative for Southern Honduras January 2019
1: Our Mission We are an interfaith “friends and family” humanitarian organization targeting the south of Honduras, working to identify needs and endeavoring to find solutions for those needs. With the support of our US-based partners, donors, friends and benefactors, we are working with Honduran friends who already work to serve their own people. It is our goal to build a strong infrastructure by means of which we, in the States, may empower them to improve the health and well-being of the people of the Honduras south. Our Vision Working independently and through partnership and collaboration, we will play a leading role in building a comprehensive, accessible and affordable network of health care services for the poor of the Honduras south.
