Familias Saludables (or Healthy Families in English) is a non-profit, non-denominational organization devoted to fighting the AIDS epidemic on Roatan, an island off the coast of Honduras. Our major focus is on reducing the incidence of mother-to-child transmission of the virus both at birth and via breast milk. We run testing clinics for pregnant women, assign trained home visitors for mothers living with HIV/AIDS, provide palliative services and, when available, we provide infant formula, medications, and a host of supplies to families struggling to cope with this disease.
All of our services are free of charge and our staff consists mainly of volunteers, both local and international. Since we depend almost entirely on donations we have prepared the following list for those who might wish to contribute. These are guidelines only and the list is by no means comprehensive. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for any help you can provide.
