The Mission of Love Foundation is sending their forty fifth airlift out of the 910Th Air wing of the United States Air Force Reserve Unit in Vienna, Ohio Friday, February 15, 2008. This humanitarian effort by many people, is to furnish and supply the basic needs of life to this one hospital in the entire province of Honduras. The patient ratio is one ( 1 ) doctor to ever 5,000 La Mosquitians Indians. The area suffers from bad communications because there are few telephone and power lines that exist in the area. Transportation is also difficult since the few roads that do exist must go through or around the area's swamps, lagoons, and dense jungles. Most of the region lacks fresh water and suitable sanitary conditions.
The La Mosquitia, Honduras during the 1980's, this rural province on the Nicaraguan border received a large number of refugees fleeing the Contra War. These immigrants joined native La Mosquitians ( mostly Indians ) in a world of poverty and ignorance. Illiteracy is high because of inadequate education. The region lacks enough school buildings, equipment and teaching tools.
With this airlift provided by the Mission of Love Foundation, Austintown, Ohio it will be sending hospital beds with mattresses, nightstands, over the bed tray tables, shelving, examination tables, medical supplies and equipment, materials and sewing supplies. In March, the very first ambulance in this Honduran Province, will be airlifted by the Denton Program and donated by the Mission of Love to the hospital. This will be an on-going Mission of Love to be able to give the La Mosquitian Indians basic human rights of medical care.
The recipient of these donations will be the Norma I. Love Foundation who has requested help for the Mesquite Indians who have been forgotten by most. In 1999 when hurricane Mitch hit Honduras the Mission of Love responded with over 35,000 pounds of Aid to the region. Their children were saved with the Aid that was delivered from America.
The Mission of Love Foundation is a non - profit organization that provides humanitarian aid to those in need worldwide, especially children. Backed be individual, local businesses and United States Military Denton Program, the Mission of Love airlifts clothing, food and medical and construction materials to our world in need. Once the supplies arrive, groups of people, both young and old, from all walks of life, are there to utilize the supplies by building medical clinics, orphanages, administering medical treatment to the ill and serving those who need help.
