Today we welcomed William, a tiny boy 13 moths of age weighing 5.5 Kg (12 lb. ).  Accompanied by his grandmother, William — suffering from third degree malnutrition — was brought to our campus by the county health authorities. His health is fragile, however we are confident that with the tender loving care, medications and with God’s blessing, William is on a solid path to recovering his health. We look forward to seeing his first smile!


Mel's friends, realizing his dreamThe Mel’s Dream Team, from Alberta, Canada, along with our friends Jeff Neddles and John Beldon, are working in the final touches for the new Hospital. They are installing the ceiling in this building. Mel’s dream was to come to PAHS in 2008 but due to a fatal accident he was unable to see his vision realized. Friends, family and colleagues have come to PAHS in 2009, 2011 and 2014 to make his dream of service come true. Mel’s Dream Team wish to express their dedication and committment to serving the needs of the children at PAHS.

Mami Verlene, Aileen and our Children in Honduras

The dream of a new school became a reality for more than one hundred little ones who have been meeting in a temporary lean-to for several years in the near-by communities of Las Palmas and La Torre.  Pan American Health Service donated a lovely hill-top site for an architect with Schools for the Children of the World of Mears, MI,  to coordinate and assist the efforts of the children’s parents, the Yibrin family and our local municipality of Santa Cruz to build the three-room school.  Construction began in February with the students and their families providing the unskilled labor.  Working together, the school was finished and inaugurated on July 12, 2013.
