People sometimes ask why support an organization working in Honduras? We explain the poverty- Honduras is the second poorest country after Haiti in the Western Hemisphere. We explain that there are literally no social service agencies or safety nets for people, unlike the US and Europe which has both public and private organizations to provide aid. However, the most compelling reason is that the children of Montaña de Luz face unfathomable discrimination because they have been affected by HIV/AIDS or have HIV. The Mountain of Light is a place of refuge and hope and your donation makes all this possible!
Montaña de Luz is a faith based organization that is dependent on donations from individuals, churches, organizations and foundations to support this life saving and tranformative work.
