Refusing to allow poverty dictate the survival of newborns in Honduras
We are currently engaged in a campaign to fundraise for the construction of a 4,200 square foot addition onto Honduras’ largest public hospital, Escuela Hospital. In 2015, 53% of babies who were born at this facility and were in need of medical intervention and/or admission, died waiting for space to become available for hospitalization.
Escuela Hospital is the largest public hospital in Honduras. Originally designed for 7,000 births per year, and in 2014, over 16,000 newborns were born at Escuela. Thousands of parents were turned away with empty arms because of a simple injustice- there just wasn’t enough space for their babies to be treated.
In 2015, Little Angels initiated a project to design an addition onto Escuela Hospital. This addition will DOUBLE treatment capacity so that Honduras’ national receiving center and its newborns will receive the dignity of hospitalization and appropriate medical care that they deserve.

treated. Escuela Hospital is the country’s leader in innovative care methods and is the training center
for the nation’s medical staff. Yet, even this reputable institution lacks the physical space to properly
According to the department of statistics at Escuela Hospital, among all the newborn deaths in 2014 at
Hospital Escuela, only 46% received proper treatment. 53% who were born at this facility and were in
need of medical intervention and/or admission, after birth, died waiting for space to become available
for hospitalization. 46% in Blue and 53% in Red.
