U.S. service members from the Army Forces Battalion Headquarters Support Company (HSC) at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, delivered charitable donations to the Horizontes al Futuro Orphanage in Comayagua Honduras, on September 5.
HSC is the sponsor for the Horizontes al Futuro Orphanage, and prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the unit visited regularly to offer its time to strengthen community morale as well as to bring donations to the children at the orphanage. This was the first time in months that HSC was able to visit the orphanage, using appropriate COVID-19 precautions for the safety of both groups.
“Seeing the children’s reaction when they get to see us again and how they appreciate our support is the most rewarding part,” said U.S. Army Captain Joseph Sierra, HSC commander. “Being available to support the orphans here in Honduras in the most amazing and rewarding experience.”
The donations given to the orphanage included clothing, shoes, food, and $1,000 to help with the needs of the orphanage.
