Reina lives in Comayagua within two blocks of the formation center run by The Missioners of Christ. She was shot a couple years ago during a random shooting and is in a wheelchair. She lives with her grandmother, sister and nephew. Reina loves art and makes these rosary bracelets to help with food and supplies for her family as well as for medical supplies. The rosary bracelets provide her a way to contribute to her family income, as there is not much opportunity to work for those who are disabled.
Noe was also a victim of gun violence. He makes rosaries to help support his family and to buy the medicines he needs.
Reina and Noe came to the Missioners of Christ Beata Margarita Physical Therapy program because there are no other therapy options for them in this remote area of Comayagua, Honduras.
Beata Margarita is our holistic physical therapy program that works with youth and young adults. The therapy program is designed to give hope and dignity to disabled children and their families. Our patients include children and young adults with a range of physical and sometimes mental disabilities. Without access to basic health care, our patients have needlessly suffered from often easily preventable health issues.
Beata Margarita offers patients hope by providing access to physical therapy treatments and quality health care. The Beata Margarita program treats not only the physical aspect of the patient, but the mental and spiritual as well. Beata Margarita provides education and training, spiritual mentorship, and fellowship and friendship for patients. Among the poor, these children and their families are often hidden away and forgotten by society. Beata Margarita provides an avenue for our patients to reach their fullest potential, so they can be everything that God intended them to be.
