More generous donations are continuing to come in to help fund the operation of the school and the renovation of the medical clinic. Another amazing donation of $5000 came in yesterday, provided by a local couple who have a real heart for this type of project. FOH is blessed to have so many faithful donors who continue to provide funds for this ongoing work. If you would like to donate to this project, please click on the "Donate Now" button at the bottom right of the Home page.
Funds have been sent to Honduras and work has begun on the medical clinic renovation! The first photos of the work being done (new metal roof being installed) are available on the Photo Albums page.
Notice of the Annual General Meeting of the Friends of Honduras Society:
The Friends of Honduras Society Annual General Meeting will be held at Ricky's All Day Grill, 2900 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC on Monday January 30, 2017 at 7 PM....all are welcome.
Final plans and cost estimates for the medical clinic have now been approved and the renovation/construction process will be getting underway shortly....very exciting! Stay tuned to this page for further updates as the work progresses....
The September 15th deadline has now arrived with a total of $10,050 having been received, making the grand total (including the $5000 in matching funds) $15,050! Thanks and well done everyone for your generous contributions to this fund raising effort. These funds will go a long way toward supporting the schools and getting the medical clinic up and operating.
There is just one week left to go in the current fundraising campaign and the grand total is now at $13,250....it looks like there is a very real possibility of reaching $15,000 in total funds raised!
As of late yesterday (Sept 1st) the "matching funds" total surpassed the goal of $5000 and now sits at $7250. There are still 2 weeks to go in the fundraising promotion and there appears to be a real chance that the donation total could reach the $10,000 threshold by Sept 15th.
The "matching funds" donation total is now over $4000 and there are still three weeks left to go until the September 15th deadline....it looks like we have a real chance of making the goal of $5000 (which then turns into $10K)! A huge thank you to all the folks who have so generously donated so far to this worthwhile cause. Hopefully we can meet, and even exceed the goal....the dream of having a functioning medical clinic at the school for use by the children and the folks from the surrounding community is getting closer to becoming a reality....any monetary assistance that you can provide would be much appreciated. Check out the Donations page on this website for details on how to donate....
Donations are continuing to come in for the "matching donations" fundraiser and the total is now over $3000...well on the way to the goal of $5000 by Sept 15th. Thanks to everyone who has participated so far and let's keep the momentum going!
We are now just over two weeks into the "matching donations" fundraiser and the total in so far is up to $2650! Well done everyone and let's keep it going! The goal is to get to (or exceed) $5000 by September 15th and whatever funds are raised by that date will be matched (up to $5000) by a very generous supporter of the Society. Check the "Donations" page on this website to get information on how easy it is to donate.
We are now 10 days into the "matching donations" fundraiser (runs until Sept 15th) and donations are up to $1800 and climbing! A big thank you to all the folks who so generously continue to support the work that FOH is doing in Honduras.
In the 4 days since the "matching donations" offer was put forward, over $700 in donations has been received....what a great start toward the goal of raising a total of $10,000 for the school, clinic and most importantly, the children, in Honduras. Thanks everyone for your support of this project!
Here is a great way to make your money go further! A very generous donor has come forward with an offer to match any donations made to Friends of Honduras by Sept 15, 2016, up to a total of $5000! So, if you were considering making a donation to help support the children at the school and build the medical clinic, this opportunity will double your donation! Let’s see if we can make this $5000 offer turn into a $10,000 reality. All monetary donations from Canadian sources will be provided with a charitable donation tax receipt.
The bake sale, organized by Ally Guevin and held at DFH Real Estate on Shelbourne St, was a huge success! Over $1500 was raised through the sale of a wide variety of delicious baked goods and by other monetary donations. A big thank-you to Ally for organizing everything and thanks also to everyone who contributed items for the sale and of course to all those generous folks who purchased something....well done everyone!!
The 4th Annual Friends of Honduras Bake Sale, organized by Ally Guevin and ably supported by some of the best volunteer bakers in Victoria, will take place at DFH Real Estate (3914 Shelbourne St in Victoria, BC) on March 8th, starting promptly at 9:30 AM.
