Honduras
Honduras faces many challenges as a nation- it is the poorest country in Latin America, it has the highest murder rate in the world and has been ravaged by the drug trade and HIV/AIDS. However, governmental and private organizations alike are working to provide health care to anyone who needs it- including eye care.

Seva Foundation, in partnership with Visualiza in Guatemala, has been working with Optilens- an eye clinic located in the city of San Pedro. With Visualiza’s assistance, Optilens staff have been able to increase their services to the people of Honduras in need of eye care.
