When Washington Overseas works in Honduras we are accompanied by young Hondurans who help us with logistics, packing, driving and whatever else we ask. They are indispensable.

Josue Padilla has worked with us for ten years assisting with both the WOM and Guanacaste brigades. He is a municipal worker who has unpacked containers, organized the bodega and helped distribute Universal Heart medicines.

Josue was diagnosed recently with a very serious cancer which requires surgery and chemotherapy. He just turned 25 years old. As with the others with whom we have collaborated each year he has become family and we want to help him during this very difficult time in his young life.

Please consider a donation to help him receive the medicine and treatment necessary for his cancer. Make your tax-deductible check out to WOM with Josue Padilla in the notation line. Please send checks to P.O. Box 1154, Washington, MO 63090.

Muchísimas gracias!
