Cape CARES sends volunteer teams to its clinics — located in remote, mountainous areas of Honduras — to provide free medical and dental care to people who have no access to care. Because we return to our clinics 3 times per year, we are able to offer follow-up care to the men, women, and children we treated on previous visits.

We provide skills, supplies, and the educational training necessary to achieve a higher level of health and well-being for the villagers. With the ongoing enhancement of our services, we are able to implement preventive health care programs.

In The News

  Honduran Election Update.....The Cape CARES Board is closely monitoring events following the Presidential Election on 26 November, 2017. The tens of thousands who protested on the Sunday after the election did so peacefully. Some communities have taken to banging pans at night as a sign of protest. We will continue to carefully review the security situation in Honduras, as events proceed. If the Board has any concerns about brigade trip safety for the February Los Encinitos trip, all participants will be duly notified. We hope for a continued, peaceful resolution of this conflict.
