La Boquita Clinic Report



Honduras Rural Healthcare
In operation since 2017
Thank you to our generous donors who make this program possible

Hello, my name is Saira Aguilar, I am a professional nurse, I belong to the Honduran College of Nursing Professionals. I am an HMA employee providing rural health care services in the La Boquita clinic and indigenous communities located in remote areas of Santa Barbara, a district in central Honduras.

Our mission is to provide patients with the healthcare they require, quickly and efficiently, for improvement of their quality of life according to their needs, built on ethical and Christian foundations. We are committed to satisfying the needs of our patients, friends and visitors from the moment they get in contact with any of the services we offer as an institution and as a health agent.

La Boquita Clinic is a great alternative for the population in this area. Free services of high quality and warmth are provided to all people, especially those most in need, people with limited economic resources, with physical difficulties, and health problems. Many of our patients come from neglected communities of our region that lack any health facilities and walk to our clinic for care.

For a limited number of communities further away, our program travels to them, providing care and delivery of their treatments monthly and free of charge.

We do all this thanks to all the people who with much love make donations so that this program continues to move forward helping those who need it most.

Testimonies from patients of La Boquita

Lucia Gerezano: I have been a patient with an ulcer in my right foot for 15 years, a friend recommended that I visit nurse Saira in La Boquita clinic, I have been in treatment with her for 5 months and my first ulcer has healed and the second is about to close completely. I am very grateful for the free services and with much love that she is giving me. I wish you many blessings.

Two years have passed and the pain does not return. Now I recommend to people that they visit La Boquita clinic.
