Our Story

As a born native from Honduras, I always envisioned to help my country one day. My dad migrated to the US in 1988 to reach the American dream that everyone has once spoken about. He knew that he could not give me a good and educated life in Honduras, due to the low standard of living, even though he had a degree as an accountant and was a skilled carpenter. In 1990, my mom and I migrated to the US, we passed Matamoros River in Mexico as immigrants to make it through. That same year my brother was born and 11 years later my little sister. Both of my parents worked very hard year after year with many difficulties, but never giving up. And it was not until I graduated from high school that I was able to help my dad administrate Extreme Wood Works, our family-owned business. As I worked alongside with my dad, as a mother and wife at 20 years of age, I also managed to keep going to school and accomplished my Bachelors in Business. My dream of helping Honduras was still pending until the unfortunate disasters of Hurricanes Eta & Iota occurred.   

Our initial plan with other friends of ours was to send 1 container to the victims of these hurricanes. We were worried that we would not make it because the container was only halfway filled and had 3 days to fill it up. But I woke up in the middle of the night in the midst of this and wrote an email to Channel 7 news. That same Sunday morning, I received a call from a reporter to make an interview for the channel to explain what we were doing. Then it hit me, we need to contact news channels and it went viral. We were able to send 3 full containers of donations to Honduras and 2 to Nicaragua with the help of Leana Astorga, Telemundo 51 reporter & the channel itself, local radio host Enrique Santos & his team, Carlos Arroyo & Nicky Jam and Marti Auto Service. Our receiving donation center was our woodshop, our main volunteers were our employees, family & friends and even though we worked 12 hour shifts for 2 weeks straight and underwent other unforeseen challenges in the middle of a Pandemic situation, it was all well worth it. I made the trip to Honduras in December 2020, missing my daughter's 14th birthday, to make sure all the donations were getting to the ones in need. My trip was a bittersweet encounter because even though we were helping thousands of families with small portions of food, clothing & medicine, the destruction was massive and therefore we are continuing to help. Amor y Fuerza Honduras is now officially a 501c3 non-profit organization that continues to ask for monetary donations to keep helping.

Monetary donations are being used to buy construction materials to repair homes, purchase medications to continuously help with medical brigades and purchase essential items, such as food, hygiene care and baby items. These donations are being canalized alongside with Rotary Club of Choloma, they have been the middle ground in making this possible. We have come a long way, but there is still so much more we can do. We give many thanks to our entire community here in Miami that responded to our call of help and we continue to ask for your help to keep helping. Honduras & Nicaragua will take 12+ years to recuperate from these disasters and we can make a difference.
