Building a Stronger Community: Our Partnership with Towson Presbyterian

Connecting with Towson Presbyterian

We were lucky enough to cross paths with Towson Presbyterian eight years ago when they were in Honduras, as a part of their yearly mission trips to the region. Each spring, they make their way to Copán to offer their services throughout the department, and this April was no different.

A Meaningful Contribution

During their three days at Casita Copán, Towson Presbyterian made an immense impact with their dedicated service. In those days, they accomplished a great deal. Here’s a glimpse of their contributions:

  • Construction Work: Their team assisted us in constructing an outdoor stove, a storage shed for our water tank, and a fence, all in just two days.
  • Tech Support: They also set up 8 brand-new Google Chromebooks, provided by RetailROI and generously transported by the Towson team to Copán for our new computer lab. This is a big deal for us as it means our children will now have access to 8 computers for their homework and other needs.

Healthcare Outreach

On Thursday, we hosted a medical brigade at our home, where 16 mothers and 37 children had the opportunity for one-on-one visits with a physician, and 23 kids received much-needed dental care. The team also provided us with essential medication, some of which will be crucial in emergency situations and for basic first aid at our facility. Additionally, they distributed prescriptions for specific children who require regular medication, sparing us the high costs and challenges associated with accessing medical care outside of Copán.

Bringing Joy to Our Children

In addition to their incredible work, Towson Presbyterian also brought activities, games, and stickers for our children, which they wholeheartedly engaged in alongside them.

A Heartfelt Thank You

To our longtime friends at Towson Presbyterian, we want to extend our deepest gratitude for their unwavering support and meaningful contributions. Their efforts have made a significant difference in the lives of the people in Copán. We can’t wait to welcome them back next spring for another round of camaraderie and collaboration. Thank you, Towson Presbyterian!
