Honduras Today!

AMIGA is a mission in God’s Amor (Love) dedicated to delivering basic health care, preventative health education, and most importantly HOPE to our brothers and sisters in Honduras living in circumstances of profound and dire need, who in return share a treasure of insight and wisdom back.

AMIGA is an organization that was born of the committed spirit and passion of Sr. Raquel Ortez, Dr. Helen Kornblum and Mrs. Jane Ebel in 2006. Their shared passion to humbly serve the poor in Central America through dedication to collection and fund raising efforts in the United States as well as mission trips to Honduras continues to evolve. AMIGA was officially recognized as a tax exempt Organization by the state of Missouri and the United States federal government in 2007.

Sr. Raquel and Dr. Helen reflect with deep gratitude on a wonderful year and so many blessings. We look forward to 2020, our fifteenth year of AMIGA - another year of serving love in Honduras. We continue to be humbly awed and profoundly grateful for the many people who shine The Presence of God into this ministry. Each donation, prayer and encouragement that we receive are what fuel and direct our mission to bring more goodness and love into this world.


2019 was a year of much growth. AMIGA completed another successful brigade in October with an awesome team of professionals all volunteering their talents and serving with love. We are most grateful to the beautiful people in Honduras we have been privileged to serve - more than 4000 women, children, and men in 2019 through AMIGA 36 and 37.


We are already preparing for AMIGA 38 in the summer of 2020 with excitement.


Amigas and amigos work all year long …

    • Medical supplies, clothing and shoes, handmade blankets and shawls (wrapping the elderly in warmth and love), handmade pharmacy bags for each patient (reducing waste and plastic and a great bag to reuse again and again!), school supplies and bags for the children and special packs for the teachers…




    • Many thanks to Saint Alban Roe Parish in Wildwood MO for helping to defray the significant cost of Amiga’s pharmacy stock.





    • IN 2020: In collaboration with Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Selma Texas (OLPH AMIGA- a dedicated and inspiring branch of AMIGA for the past 10 years) and our friends in Puerto Cortes, Tegucigulpa, La Lima, El Progresso, and Copán Honduras, we will send our SHIPMENT #18 in the Spring of 2020.


    • IN 2020: AMIGA 38 and AMIGA 39


With your support, we continue to bring HOPE, the fruit of prayer and faith – through this Amazing Mission In God’s Amor. We passionately serve with love, enhancing wellness of body, mind and spirit to our impoverished brothers and sisters in Cortés, Yoro, and Copán, Honduras.
