Since Honduran hospitals usually lack the equipment and supplies for specialized surgery the brigade teams must bring everything with them. The Honduran Children’s Rescue Fund works with MedWish International, a Cleveland, OH based organization, that collects surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals in Northeast Ohio and makes them available to facilities in Emerging Countries. The only cost to the user for the needed items is freight. The U. S Government Denton Program allows humanitarian goods to be shipped on U.S. Air Force Cargo planes provided there is a qualified shipper and receiver. The Honduran Children’s Rescue Fund has obtained qualification status for MedWish and Helping Hands for Honduras to serve in these capacities. While the international freight is at no cost, the Honduran Children’s Rescue Fund pays local freight costs. Because of this program hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical equipment and supplies have been shipped to Honduras for use by the surgical brigades and many Honduran hospitals and clinics.
