Pan American Health Service, Honduras

Join SIMS to bring holiday cheer to the children of Pan American Health Services (PAHS), a nutritional rehabilitation center for children under 5 years of age located in the mountains of North Central Honduras. For more than 10 years, SIMS has been taking trips to PAHS, participating in the ongoing projects and activities of the rehabilitation center and outpatient clinic. SIMS teams have provided medical and dental clinics for the PAHS community, mobile clinics to rural villages, public health education programs, child therapy programs, and more. Students also participate in a large Christmas and/or New Years fiesta for the children each year and most importantly, spend time caring for, playing with, and loving the PAHS children.

If you would like to learn more about PAHS and see pictures of the children currently in rehabilitation, please visit their website at
