Medical Brigades in Honduras: International Health Service of MN

For over 30 years, volunteers for non-profit International Health Service of Minnesota have traveled to Honduras to bring medical and dental care to people in remote villages there. Each February, over 100 volunteers from several countries travel throughout Honduras in brigadas médicas, or medical brigades, bringing health care to people who do not have access to health care. Smaller teams also go in Ocotber.


On today's Wave Project, IHS volunteers talk about how trips to Honduras are organized and financed, and logistics of traveling, delivering supplies and working in a third-world country. Hear stories of compassion and service in extremely poor areas of Central America.
