Sponsor A Child
While Honduras suffers from many problems, Osman Hope centers on the plight of the children in Honduras. There are approximately 10,000 street children, only half of whom have shelter on any given day. This number is compounded by the number of latch key children who are left alone at home to fend for themselves while the parent works. Over 70% of the population is under nourished. 40% of the children under age 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition and four percent of this age group die each year because of inadequate health care. Upon entering our shelters, a typical child will increase their body weight by 15-20%. Our children receive ongoing health care and are given ant-parasitic medicine semi-annually. Through our child sponsorship program, $52 a month or $624 a year will provide a safe and healthy environment where the child will get two meals and two snacks daily.
