1. A Clinic for Oropoli, Honduras


    from Kent Kessinger Added 324 0 0

    I was walking through the streets of Oropoli and this old man insisted that I ride his horse up the mountain. Of course I obliged, I bargained with him to take the horse for a couple hours but he demanded that I bring the horse back in 30 minutes. It was just as well, the horse was very slow and tired. I arrived in Honduras and Pastor Moises picked me up at the airport and we went to eat some fried chicken. He told me all about the little town of Oropoli and their need for a clinic. I had been to Oropoli three years before with a medical brigade but the bus broke down on the way so about 4 of us piled in a truck and made the rest of the trip. There were many people lined up to receive medical attention and it was disappointing to be unable to help them. This time was different, me and the medical brigade from www.compassionmed.org made it out there early and spent the night to get 2 full days of medical service in. There were hundreds of people lined up outside waiting patiently in the hot sun and a thunderstorm that passed through. After hearing Moises tell me about the problem in Oropoli I decided that I would help in any way I can so i told him I would put together a short documentary on need for the clinic and set up a fundraiser which can be found here - http://www.crowdrise.com/oropoli I hope you enjoy this documentary as much as I enjoyed filming (not editing) it. Please pass the lin on to everyone you know and hopefully we can get this much needed clinic up and running as soon as possible. All the funds will be sent to a seperate fund through www.compassionmed.org and go straight to Oropoli. Thanks for your time! Kent Kessinger kentkessinger@gmail.com

              from Building Botswana Added 214 0 0

              Building Botswana is a 501c3 non-profit, building hope for poverty stricken communities. Currently we are raising money to build a school in the village of Pandamatenga in Botswana, Africa. The children have to walk 6km (3.7 miles) every morning to get to school and again to return. Dropout rates are high and graduation rates are low, not to mention the dangers of walking through the wilds of Africa every single day! With your help, we can build a school right next door so the children are encouraged to not only stay in school but perform well, leading to better job placement and ultimately economic development in the area, helping the future generations of Pandamatenga!
