Honduras Mission Trip
Habitat Wake’s next mission trip to Honduras will be held March 4-12, 2017.
Honduras Trip Highlights
- • Help a family improve their health and quality of life.
- • Learn new skills and work with others with a heart for service.
- • Explore the local community and enjoy cultural activities.
The cost of the program is estimated at $1000 (this does not include airfare, required visas, or immunizations.) This cost does include accommodations, meals, in-country transportation and medical insurance, as well as an important donation to Habitat for Humanity to help build safe housing. Participants pay for their air transportation to San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and flight information will be provided. You can raise funds to help cover the trip costs or to support our work in Cambodia! Create your own page here.
