The Mercy Team was created with the purpose to deliver basic food packages containing rice, beans, cooking oil, salt, sugar, spaghettis, corn flour, tomatoe sauce, and more, all enough to feed very poor families in the remote villages of Copan and Tela.

Our Feeding Center in Santa Rita, Copan was stablished in 2011 and is part of a local church led by Pastor Edgar Leiva. 15 to 20 children are fed three days per week at this center. During Sunday School they are provided with teachings from the bible.
We are looking to partner with individuals, families, churches, Sunday School classes, at just $100 a month.

This program is currently considered a "project opportunity." Although we have $30,000 worth of machinery and a carpentry facility, we still need $15,000 more to secure spots for 15 students to work full-time, or 30 students to work part-time. These boys will create and sell their woodwork during the day and attend school at night, earning between $250 and $400 for their families every month. The program's goal is to improve the lives of people by equipping them with skills and knowledge that allow acces to better employment. Recovering the dignity that comes from work and a Christian ethic improves their quality of life and reduces the number of those living in poverty.
Eleven medical and dental missions happen each year that include surgical groups, dentistry, —among other things.
Our goal is to eradicate cleft palate and lips through our surgical center in Copan. New medical specialties are now coming from both American and Honduran national doctors.
We asked Honduran pastors what they needed the most. In response to the answers they gave, we provide them with conferences on Marriage, Effective Parenting, and Leadership Development.
The single most powerful opportunity for a brighter future is Education. The "Fuente de Poder School" in Copan offers middle school and high school students the opportunity to learn with experienced, local teachers in a Christian environment.
