It’s a Dump Day Give-Away

Dump Day is about a week away (May 4th).  Dump Day started two years ago when we learned about the people in the Tegucigalpa dump, who are SO poor that they dig through the trash to find food and things to sell. Since the start of Dump Day and because of your donations …

  • A daycare center has been set up outside the dump so that parents will not have to take their children into the dump with them.
  • Food is provided at the dump.
  • Baby formula is provided.
  • A shower place was built outside so that people could wash themselves and clean up.
  • A water sanitation system has been set up outside the dump where people can get clean water.
  • This year (besides providing meals for hungry people) an aquaponics garden/farm project is being built on land outside the dump. This is big because it will feed the people and provide jobs for years! It is estimated that the garden will provide 1 million pounds of fish and food a year.

All these things are helping to break the vicious cycle of poverty that keeps people in the dump! It provides many families and children with a way out! Your giving has been amazing.

This year one of the things I’m excited about is if you make a donation of $150 or more, you will receive a beautiful hand-signed and numbered print of a little boy at the Tegucigalpa dump.  The little boy was peeking out from under a tarp where he was taking a break from digging in the trash at the dump. Here’s the original photograph and the one beautifully painted by Chastity Henry. The first 200 people to make donations of $150 or more will get a hand-signed, numbered print (16×24) that they can hang in their home or office.

Send your check to:

Honduras Hope
P.O. Box 9222
Columbus, MS 39705

Please add “For Dump Day” and “Would like a Print”

This all starts next Wednesday … thanks for helping spread the word.

    Trey,

    I met Chastity as a 5 year old. Her father came back to the States, from Germany, with she and 2 younger siblings after his wife left him. I had the opportunity to keep these children in our home several times while Joe (dad) was at work, took them to have their hair cut, portraits made for Father’s Day and sewed dresses for the girls.Chastity is a very special young lady.

    A few months ago Mark Tindall posted that he had found the little boy in the painting and he had a smile on his face. I think it would be cool for Chastity to paint a second painting and then they be sold as a set.

    Chastity and her husband have been house parents at Parogould Childrens Home in Arkansas. She has gone back to school and is studying art. Very appropriate I think.

    Thought you might find some of her story fascinating.

      Lisa, loved the story. Thanks for the background.

      I’ve a seen the little boy on a couple of occasions. I have a couple of pictures of him that I’ve taken. He’s very photogenic. I saw him last December at the Jesus banquet. Now, I’ll also admit that there’s a chance I’ve got my boys mixed up.

    Is this dump site in Texas? Do they come weekly or daily? I am so glad this ministry has been set up and will pray that one day it is not needed.
    God Bless!
    Will watch for address and info….

      Lee,

      It’s in Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras. I learned about it in 2009 and started trying to raise money to help. The past two years have been amazing. Next Wednesday will be an amazing day.

    Hi Trey

    Jel recommended this blog. I’ve heard of such places in India and Africa. Where is this place/ how did you come across it? I already subscribe to one Christian organisation for blindness so am committed there . How does the government allow this to happen?

    • Trey Morgan says:

      That Jel, she’s a sweetie. This place is in Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras. I read about it in a newsletter and have made numerous trips there since 2009. It’s as bad as they say. Being a 3rd world country … there’s not much the government does to help. Thankfully some amazing people have stepped up and helped the last two years by giving.
