Mobility Carts and Pharmaceuticals Bring Hope to Honduras

A recent shipment of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies from Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) has been distributed to underserved communities in Honduras at no cost to patients.

The 40’ container, which left BBF’s warehouse in October 2022, was distributed to health care clinics and facilities through Food For The Poor’s (FFTP) on-the-ground network and provided medications to patients suffering from viral infections, high cholesterol and rheumatoid arthritis.

“Our health system is going through its own challenges and many people do not have the medication they need, which is why when these types of donations are made, we know we bring hope to those people who need it most,” Heydy Bu, FFTP’s in-country partner representative, said.

In addition to a variety of medical supplies, the shipment also included seven mobility carts, one of which was given to a handicapped boy who used it in a telethon that raised money for physical therapy treatments.

“The boy was super excited to receive his ‘carrito,’ as he called it, and he and his family sent many good wishes and blessings of good health to the donors who made this possible,” Bu said.
