Update! Construction of the addition

The orphanage "Hermanas de Jesus Buen Samaritano" continues on its quest to fund the capital expense of an addition valued at $700,000.

The orphanage, adopts children into the home 'for life'. The impact of adoption 'for life' implies that children adopted in 1989, when the home was founded, are now adults. The home recognizes the need to separate quarters for older and younger as well as men and women. This has led to the construction of an addition to the existing building which allows for residents to share sleeping quarters with peers of the same age and gender. Space will also be made available for 30 additional children and 25 homeless elderly women.

The addition was started in 2008, the budgeted cost was $700,000, to date the building is close to 80% completed with $550,000 in donations. It is becoming increasingly difficult, however, for the home to raise the additional $150,000 required to complete the addition. The Honduran economy is experiencing set backs and donations are harder to acquire. Our 501c3 organization "Friends of Good Samaritan"in the USA is diligently working to raise funds to complete the addition which will enhance the quality of life for the existing residents as well as add space for new members.

Any donations you offer will be well used and greatly appreciated.
