Saint Clare's Physicians Complete Medical Mission to Catacamas, Honduras

Week-long mission provided medical and surgical services to local residents in Honduras

Local residents of Catacamas, Honduras, received free medical services in a week-long medical mission conducted by a brigade from Saint Clare’s. The medical mission was held in May at Santo Hermano Pedro Hospital located in Catacamas, Olancho, which is known as the wild west of Honduras. The Saint Clare’s brigade provided much-needed urological and gynecological medical attention to local residents who traveled great distances for the care. These and other physicians brought Saint Clare’s healing ministry to the Honduran people.
