CityHope is teaming up with Dr. Martin Williams and the Jungle Hospital (www.junglehospital.com) in Rio Viejo, Honduras to care for the medical needs of the people in this area. We will be involved in medical clinics at the Jungle Hospital along with medical brigades at various villages throughout the area.
The communities in the jungle will open your mind up to the possibilities of God’s love when you see how welcoming they are.

Where will we stay?
Our teams stay in the dormitory at the Jungle Hospital.
What will we eat?
All of your meals are “home cooked”. We will eat local foods and get a taste of the Honduran culture and customary foods they eat. It’s very hard to accommodate food allergies in some countries, if you have food allergies, please let me know in advance.
Though not drastically different, the customary foods of the jungle do differ slightly to those in the city. Even more different, the meals that will be prepared for you at the Jungle Hospital add an American twist to customary Honduran food. A common and very delicious food that you will find is a Pastelito. It is a puffed up, savory pastry filled with meat and sometimes onions and cabbage. Like the Pastelist, all Honduran food is handmade with the person eating it in mind.
What should I bring?
Each trip is different and you’ll be given a packing list for this specific trip at the mission meeting. You will bring all the basic necessities for hygiene and living. Clothing is mainly shorts, jeans, t-shirts. Tennis shoes and sandals.
The climate is very manageable and allows for many different types of clothing to be comfortable.
Do I need vaccines?
We recommend getting a current tetanus shot as well as hepatitis A&B. Always check the CDC for recommendations when traveling.
