Clubfoot Population Enrolled
Enrolled Since the Program Began
Annual Clubfoot Births
Having always loved working with people and the community, Gabriela finds that working with Hope Walks as a program manager in Honduras allows her to do just that. She says that the greatest joy she has in her work is hearing families say that they did not have hope until they saw their children’s feet straightened. Before working with Hope Walks, Gabriela served as a country director for MAP International.
Gabriela holds a degree in dentistry from la Universidad Nacional Autónoma in Honduras and a certificate in social psychology from la Universidad Nacional de la Patagonia Austral, and she is currently pursuing a degree in health management from UNITEC in Honduras. In her free time, Gabriela loves to work at her family’s roasting coffee company and on their coffee farm, as well as going on a couple dental mission trips each year.

About the Country
Honduras is the second largest and the second poorest nation in Central America. It is home to one of the last remaining tropical rain forests in North America. In late 2020, it was hit hard by two back-to-back hurricanes (Eta and Iota) that left widespread destruction and flooding that will take years of recovery. About 95% of the population claim Christianity as their religion, with Roman Catholicism the largest segment.
Please pray for Honduras’s socio-economic issues, such as children at risk, HIV/AIDS and gang violence. More than half of the nation’s population are children. The large orphan population often gets involved with gangs and the sex trade out of desperation. Pray for Hope Walks staff, clinicians and the families we serve.
