INTERNATIONAL RELIEF TEAMS: DEREK’S FIRST HOPE FOR A HEALTHY FUTURE

Derek Cerrato Lemus has been sick since the day he was born.

He is three years old and has suffered every day of his short life with an undiagnosed illness. His parents, Oracio and Rosalina, tried desperately to find a solution for him but were limited by their circumstances. Therefore, their little boy continued to suffer from frequent respiratory infections and fevers.

You see, the Cerrato Lemus family lives in Choloman, a rural town in Honduras, a country plagued by poverty and violence. Oracio grew up in extreme poverty and now supports his family of three working six days a week in a car paint shop. He makes just $429 a month.
