Providing Medical and Dental since 1988
Cape CARES is a Honduran nonprofit humanitarian organization. We

high quality community-based care to people living in rural Honduras, including team-centered primary
care, medical and dental treatment,
preventive care, health education and training for the local communities.
It's Good to be Back
After a very successful return to San Marcos, Cape CARES Board of Directors and volunteers are preparing for a full return to both clinics in 2022! We will need your help this giving season to ensure that we can; properly restock our clinics with pharmaceuticals and supplies, hire local hondurans to help with patient flow, and provide culturally conscious medical and dental care free of charge to our patients in Honduras.
By donating to Cape CARES, you will be providing direct funds to ensure the safety of our patients, community, and volunteers as we return to our Honduran clinics.

Access to health and dental care has always been limited in Honduras, however, due to COVID-19 and the influx of hospitalizations, access became nearly impossible for the past year and a half. Especially for those who have a difficult time traveling long distances for health or financial reasons. For most of Cape CARES patients, our brigades are their only access to healthcare for the year, making our presence more important than ever.
After being away from our clinics for 2 years, Cape CARES returned to San Marcos in October 2021 and had what most volunteers called, "the most successful brigade of their Cape CARES career." Gearing up for 2022, our first task will be to return to Los Encinitos. We will, once again, extend our brigade by a few days to maximize the amount of patients we see for the week and try to see the most vulnerable patients in the communities. After a very successful however expensive return to San Marcos, Cape CARES will need your help this giving season! We want to ensure that we can; properly restock our clinics with pharmaceuticals and supplies, hire local hondurans to help with patient flow, and provide culturally conscious medical and dental care free of charge to our patients in Honduras. Thanks to all of our amazing supporters, we know we can have a successful 2022!

We support those who are speaking out against the longstanding pattern of systemic racism in the United States resulting in violent deaths of Black People and serious health disparities in Black Communities.
We understand that systemic racism also affects the health of people and communities around the world including Black and Non-Black Honduran people in the communities that we accompany in Honduras.

families came for well visits and were in absence of
major health problems, evidence of a primary pediatric care model.”
