Accessing Affordable Hernia Surgery in Honduras

Field Report by Operation Blessing

HONDURAS – For some families, finding affordable hernia surgery in Honduras can be a insurmountable challenge. This common condition, where internal organs bulge through weakened muscle or tissue, can cause excruciating pain and complications if left untreated. Tragically, many Honduran children, like 5-year-old Josue, are forced to endure this debilitating issue without access to the medical care they desperately need.

Josue’s Path to Hernia Surgery in Honduras

Josue was born with a hernia that only got worse as he aged. His parents recalled the agonizing days when “he was in constant pain” and the local hospital could do nothing to help. “I felt a pain in my heart because I wanted to fix him or pay for surgery. But for us, it was impossible. We will never be able to afford the cost of an operation,” Josue’s mother shared.

Fortunately, we were able to step in and provide Josue with life-changing hernia surgery at no cost to his family. After the successful procedure, Josue’s parents rejoiced, saying, “I am very grateful to Operation Blessing. I hope that you can help many more families like ours.”
