The beautiful and modern Good Samaritan Clinic in Catacamas, Honduras, provides out-patient family medical care, specialty care and surgical procedures by doctors in Predisan's volunteer program.

A Rural and Mountain Health Program operates clinics in rural and mountain areas near Catacamas.

CEREPA, Predisan's addiction-treatment center in Catacamas is known as a leading center throughout Central America. It usually operates at capacity for men and women in-patients, and provides out-patient care.

An Education Program provides a scholarship program for students from kindergarten through high school, programs for health workers and citizens associated with the mountain clinics, and an anti-addiction/self-esteem program for elementary and secondary students.

A Community Development Program works with the mountain communities Predisan serves to provide education, collaboration on public health projects such as water and latrine systems and a variety of education/community development services. The program works with governmental agencies to provide a Healthy Schools program to students in local elementary schools. The students receive medical screenings, vitamins, parasite treatments, lice treatments and a healthy snack each day.

A Spiritual Development Program works to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ through all of Predisan's efforts. Chaplains work at Predisan facilities daily to bring comfort and encouragement and oversee a program to provide vouchers for medical care to those unable to pay Predisan's symbolic charges for services.

Mission:
OUR MISSION AND VISION
PREDISAN exists as a Christian healthcare organization so that individuals in our service area (currently eastern Honduras) can experience wholeness – spiritual, physical, social, economic and environmental health – according to God’s redemptive plan.

We focus on three areas of ministry that provide a holistic approach to healing lives: Healthcare, Community Development and Spiritual Formation.
Results:
For 26 years, Mission Predisan has been instrumental in the development and implementation of health promotion and health education training programs. Predisan works with local universities and the Honduran Ministry of Health to develop education programs and training guidelines that set the standard for training the next generation of Honduran healthcare providers. Our staff are Honduran nationals that have been instrumental to improving the quality of health in their communities. They are doctors, nurses, teachers, psychologists, counselors, mid-wives and health promoters that serve with the heart and compassion of Christ.
Predisan staff and volunteers provide high quality health care, rehabilitation for drug addicts and alcoholics, biblical family counseling and drug prevention activities for youth. We concentrate our services on the most marginal and unprotected groups, especially those that are at the greatest risk and/or have the least access to services. Predisan operates out of eight facilities in the eastern mountains of Honduras, The Family Health Center and Good Samaritan Clinic in central Catacamas, CEREPA addiction treatment center and one clinic in rural suburbs of Catacamas and five remote mountain clinics where we serve more than 50 small villages.
We join with local, national efforts, health organizations, and community groups to develop strategies that address the cause of disease and implement preventative activities that empower communities to build sustainable solutions. We foster a safe and healthy environment for mind, body and spirit through community development and education initiatives that impact the next generation. Community development programs are the key to the sustainability, success and health of the people and communities we serve.
To inspire future missionaries we integrate volunteer experiences into all of our programs. Predisan’s volunteer program creates an exchange of experiences with professionals, medical brigades and students. Volunteers come primarily from North American churches, colleges and medical schools — bringing fresh ideas and expertise to expand Predisan's outreach. More than 270 doctors, church members, community leaders and students — as individuals or as groups — visited and worked at Predisan in 2013.

I first heard of PREDISAN about 10 years ago. However, I did not know what it was. Approximately, five years ago, I decided to join a mission group from East Brainerd Church of Christ, Chattanooga, TN. There were 22 people on this team who spent a week in Catacamas, Honduras volunteering for ... more »
