How YOU can help / donate

The needs in Honduras may be immense, but by working hand-in-hand with our Honduran brothers and sisters, it is possible to make a lasting difference. The Carpenteros work in partnership with World Renew (formerly Christian Reformed World Relief Committee) and its Honduran partners Diaconia Nacional, Alfalit, Harvest, MCM/Stewardship of Christian Ministries and the Association for a More Just Society in Honduras. These partners do not determine or tell a community what its needs are. Rather, through consultation and assessment of the community's strength and weaknesses, the priorities are identified and a strategy is developed to achieve the community's goals. The Carpenteros partner with willing communities, so that by working together we can bring about lasting improvement for Hondurans in need.
