Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

This year we are planning to expand our clinic services, adding simple surgical procedures such as appendectomy, hysterectomy, and prostate surgeries. Another of our goals is to grow our optometry services and be able to provide glasses.

We do this by operating our clinic 6 days per week in Santa Ana, Intibuca, Honduras, providing healthcare in the community at little or no cost. We have a lab, optometry, and dental services, as well as a pharmacy.

We have an excellent facility and a staff of eight including a lab technician, dentist, optometrist nurse, doctors, and clinic administrator. We receive both monetary donations and donations of medical supplies that keep our clinic running.

Since the clinic opened in 2014 it has provided over 20,000 medical appointments, and people come from outside the Santa Ana area to receive care.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
