About HERO

Who are we?

Our organization was begun by a small group of people who wanted to “give back”. We were aware of our fortunate lives and of those far less fortunate than us. We began as a grassroots medical team that served in the remote mountains of Honduras. We are now comprised of a diverse group of volunteers which gives us the ability to serve more people in many more ways.

What can we do?

Our mission is to provide medical care, dental care, nutritional support, vision testing and eye glasses, animal health (thus human health), sustainable projects such as solar cookers, wind towers, solar energy, etc. We want to educate the people who live in disease and poverty striken areas of the world and we want them to live more fulfilled healthier lives. We bring spiritual support and guidance to those in need. We are an approved 501c3 non-profit organization and your generous donation is tax deductible.

Where have we been?

We returned once again to the poorest, most remote Tibetan refugee camps in Mainpat, India. Our goals were met beyond our expectations. We treated people in medical clinics held daily. We established a vaccination program to protect the refugees from Hepatitis B and Typhoid. We also provided basic nutritional support, pre-natal vitamins, high dose vitamin A, solar cookers, eyeglasses, automatic defibrillator, and health and hygiene education. We will be returning to Mainpat in 2014 to continue the work and to return to our new found friends bringing more support to this harsh, devastated area.

How can you help and become a HERO?

Every penny you donate goes directly to the support of these HERO projects. Medication, dental care, medical care, nutritional support, alternative power sources, solar cookers, etc. will all be possible because of your generous support. A donation of $100 will immunize a child against Hepatitis B which is very prevalent at the camps and deadly. A $30 donation will vaccinate a refugee against Typhoid which claims millions of lives each year worldwide. We could treat Malaria with simple medications that cost so little to save a life. We experienced first hand the loss of a child from malaria in the camp our first year and we lost a close Tibetan friend to malaria again this year, Gevi Lodoe. We are hopeful to not see another victim of this terrible infection again but that will require your support. Any amount you can give will help tremendously. Your donation is a great way to “Give Back”! Your generosity is greatly appreciated and is tax deductible as we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
