InterAmerican Restoration Corporation (IRC) coordinates a variety of projects in Honduras and other parts of Central America. IRC regularly secures donations of medical supplies, pharmaceuticals, furniture, building supplies, and food items. These items are shipped from the United States and distributed to local citizens and public or charitable entities. While we have representatives in Honduras who work to provide aid year round, our primary source of aid comes through short term mission groups under the name of TORCH Missions. Through TORCH Missions, hundreds of volunteers provide vital services to the Honduran people through a number of means, including home and school construction, medical and dental clinics, the construction of water wells, and food and clothing distribution. IRC also operates a free clinic offering medical and dental services called Clinica de Esperanza.

InterAmerican Restoration Corporation provides needed medical resources to meet the needs of people in Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Equador, Brazil, Haiti and Guyana. Coordinating with the governments and local organizations of these countries is paramount in providing care to the poor. Our efforts focus on urban villages and communities that lack health infrastructure and where people have no other health care resources.

Over the past 20 years, IRC has helped to build more than a thousand homes across Honduras through a partnership with TORCH Missions. In addition to providing homes to poor families, IRC has also overseen the construction of schools, a foster home, medical clinics and a women’s job skills training center. Our building projects have taken place in tough urban neighborhoods within Tegucigalpa to remote villages high in the Honduran mountains.

IRC is committed to providing basic needs like food and water to impoverished communities. One of the ways we accomplish this is through providing food resources to poor neighborhoods and villages. From handing out lunches on a weekly basis in Tegucigalpa’s city dump to feeding schoolchildren in Santa Ana, IRC helps more than a thousand people each week with hunger needs. We also purchase and deliver fresh fruits and vegetables at the local markets that are then distributed door-t0-door to families in need.

IRC has been fortunate to bring fresh water wells to several communities that desperately needed them. Those fresh water wells were made possible by partnerships with generous individuals as well as organizations who meet that specific need.
