Rus Rus, Gracias a Dios, Honduras

Initial Training

In November 2022, International HELP (IHELP) partnered with Missionary Air Group in Rus Rus, Gracias a Dios, Honduras. This extremely remote area is made up largely of the Miskito indigenous population and lacks access to quality healthcare. There is a great need for Community Health Workers (CHWs) to provide health education and basic health services. IHELP conducted a 5-day training, training and certifying 28 local people as CHWs. Some traveled hours on foot (from as far as Nicaragua!) to participate in the training. Each CHW is empowered to spread their knowledge to better serve their communities.

Training Topics

  • Vital Signs
  • Examining & Caring for a Sick Person
  • Nutrition and Related Illnesses
  • Respiratory Illnesses & Care

Thank you for the valuable help which has been very beneficial for us. We have never had such great training like this before and now we can do something new that will help our communities. This training will help and provide positive results in our communities. We hope to continue receiving more training.
