Central American Relief Efforts
Providing Medical and Dental since 1988
Cape CARES is a Honduran nonprofit humanitarian organization. We maintain no religious or political affiliation. We endeavor to deliver 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
Cape CARES is back in Honduras! After three very successful clinic weeks, Cape CARES is working to access community health needs and 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.

Cape Cares Special Projects
Soccer Ball Fundraiser
One of Cape CARES' fundamental practices for serving communities in Honduras is assessing community needs. The needs for the communities Cape CARES serves ranges from; reliable medical and dental care, prenatal and children's vitamins, clean water, nutritious food, and one that has been recently identified, the importance of play in child development.
One of our incredible volunteers, Charlotte Perkins, has identified the importance of play for children who visit our clinic, specifically the importance of supporting the long term cognitive, emotional, and physical health of children. Charlotte realized that soccer, although a loved national sport in Honduras, is not something that is feasible to kids in Honduras, and that poverty and access to soccer balls serves as a real barrier for kids in Honduras to participate and receive all the benefits of play.
Charlotte has decided to put on a fundraiser to raise enough money to provide soccer balls to local children and schools that surround Cape CARES clinics.

The Board of Directors at Cape CARES stands in solidarity against Racism
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.

“We seemed to have a very high number of young children and families this year. Many families came for well visits and were in absence of major health problems, evidence of a primary pediatric care model.”
