Cape CARES is dedicated to serve the people living in rural Honduras. Every dollar donated provides medication, vitamins, and treatment to individuals and families who have little to no access to care.

Why Donate to Cape CARES?

Since 1988, Cape CARES has treated families and communities in the southwest rural region of Honduras, making us one of the oldest NGO's in Honduras! Returning to each community multiple times a year has allowed for Cape CARES to build a team-centered primary care practice that provides medical and dental treatment, follow up care, preventive care, health education, and community needs assessments. None of this would be possible without you, and the generous support of donors like you!

Access to health and dental care has always been limited in Honduras. For those living in the rural areas that our clinic serves, long travel distances for care, financial burdens of travel, patient visits, and medications, and limited access due to low doctor to patient ratios, are just some of the barriers faced when trying to access health and dental care. To combat these barriers, Cape CARES was founded on the principle of continuity; providing medical and dental care year after year in the same locations, serving the needs of long-term health care in rural Honduran communities.

Our clinics function as a family practice, following patients over many years and treating for a variety of acute and chronic conditions, as well as screening and referral for more serious conditions. Our dental clinics have used the same model, and are now able to provide fillings, dental cleanings, and fluoride treatments, instead of extractions.
Cape CARES has worked to form sustainable long-term partnerships with community leaders to address overall health of the dry corridor in Honduras; for example, consulting on a water filter project, helping to provide women with prenatal vitamins, and holding community needs assessments and health educational sessions. We strive to create positive and sustainable changes in the lives of our patients, their families, and their communities.
