Improving healthcare for all people of the Bay Islands



Although the ultimate goal is for Clinica Esperanza to be self-sustainable, the reality of the current situation is that the clinic’s operating budget is almost completely comprised of donated funds, and The Clinic is frequently out of necessary medication and supplies. Any donation(s) you may be able to provide the clinic would be IMMENSELY appreciated!Clinica Esperanza is a not for profit clinic for the underserved of the Bay Islands of Honduras. Clinica Esperanza is a subsidiary of a duly established Honduran NGO registered as “Asociacion de Salud Comunitaria de las Islas de la Bahia.” Our Honduran registration number is 310-2006. Many of the programs offered by Clinica Esperanza are made possible by the generous grant-based support of a US based 501(c)3 Bay Islands Community Healthcare Association.

Donating Supplies

*Please don’t send in-kind donations without contacting us first. Email to arrange shipping. Please do NOT send boxes to the Indiana address.

The clinic volunteers bring down necessary supplies for use, but donated clinic supplies often run out and therefore there is a constant need for more! Donated medications should have at least 6 months before their expiration date. Please check with us if you have any medication related questions. Please check our website for an updated list of needed supplies or contact us by email for specific questions at If you wish to donate supplies rather than money, kindly e-mail prior to sending any in kind items.
