New Health Center in Western Honduras

The construction of the new health clinic and maternal/infant birthing center in Belén Gualcho is finally done! PAG has been working on building these life-saving facilities since mid-2013 and the project has finally come to an end.

After its inauguration in late November 2014, this special center will serve as an affordable and accessible health clinic for the general population of Lenca inhabitants living in the Celaque Highlands. The second floor birthing center will be a life-saving option to many women who once had to deliver their babies at home without any professional help, many times running the risk of losing their children. The Lenca Indian communities surrounding Belén Gualcho are excited to see this project finally finished as many local volunteers have put much time and effort into helping make this center a reality!
