M.A.H. Creations is thrilled to join forces with Global Ministries Fellowship and Mount Carmel Baptist Mission. We are so thankful for the opportunity to be a collection site for SUMMER clothing, new or gently worn. These articles will be a much needed resource for the children of the San Jorge community on the outskirts of Choluteca, Honduras. All sizes are needed, summer clothing only please as it is very hot year around.
Every year, nearly 11 million children die from preventable causes before reaching their fifth birthday. Millions more survive only to face diminished futures, unable to develop to their full potential.
150 million children in developing countries are malnourished. Malnourished children have lowered resistance to infection; they are more likely to die from common childhood ailments like respiratory infections.
For those who survive, frequent illness saps their nutritional status, locking them into a vicious cycle of recurring sickness and faltering growth.
Almost a third of the children in developing countries have no access to safe water.
Drinking contaminated water is the major cause of diarrhea with about 4 billion cases per year causing 2.2 million deaths, mostly among children under five.
One in five of all children in developing countries are not able to go to school. Illiteracy and poverty go hand in hand.
– Extreme poverty, unemployment, hunger, and disease have left their mark on Honduras. You can partner with us to provide Christ-centered assistance to poverty-stricken children in Choluteca, Honduras, through the Mount Carmel Baptist Mission. Founded by Fred and Mary Hurd in 1997, the mission now has three churches, two feeding kitchens for children, a day care center, a clinic, and a child sponsorship program.
The Mount Carmel Baptist Mission operates in the San Jorge barrio on the outskirts of Choluteca. It’s a place that experiences extreme heat or humidity year-round. The temperature typically exceeds 90 degrees in January. But, nobody in San Jorge has the luxury of air conditioning. This is a community where the 21st Century is utterly non-existent. San Jorge is a slum of cardboard shanties and mud huts. People here have no electricity, no running water, and precious little food.
