Honduras is the second-largest country in Central America and one of its most dangerous, plagued by robberies, abductions, gang warfare, and drug cartels. Social and political inequalities are glaring, and about 70 percent of the population lives below the poverty line. Many of its citizens dream of leaving.
Although the country is only 30 percent Catholic, the Church offers a rare sign of hope. But it has not grown on pace with the population: there are too few priests and lay catechists to effectively minister to 9 million people.
ACN plans to help by sending 3000 Bibles and 3000 copies of the DOCAT, a handbook for the Church’s social teachings geared toward young readers, so that they might pursue a better and more humane society.
We have agreed to give $26,000. Will you help to make this promise a reality and bring God’s word to the children of Honduras?
