The Javi Gema Help Corporation

The Javi Gema Help Corporation (also known as the Child Help Fund) is an organization designed to help disabled, abused, abandoned, or neglected children in Honduras by providing responsible financial assistance for necessaries and medications, promoting education though mentorship and targeted tutoring, recruiting medical and dental professionals for in-country service, and supporting other worthy non-profit organizations in Honduras.

Javier Lara, 3 years oldThe name of the organization was selected to honor two children who died much too young: Javier and Gema Lara of San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Javier (September 9, 2003 – August 2, 2006) was a vibrant little boy whose life had just begun when a serious heart condition took his life. His parents were saddened by his early death, but chose to honor his life through service to their neighbors and community in place of grief and depression. After Javier died, they continued to care for their other two young children Gema and Andres.

                Two years later a similar heart condition took little Gema as well (February 3, 1996 – April 17, 2008). Only a few months prior to passing she had been taken to a specialist in Honduras and was given a clean bill of health. Only after it was too late was her condition discovered.

The Child Help Fund was designed to generate funds to help Javier and Gema’s brother Andres receive proper diagnosis and treatment to avoid the early death that took his brother and sister. While striving to accomplish that initial objective, the Child Help Fund has since expanded to aid other children who manifest a need. Indeed, the Child Help Fund no longer focused on the medical needs of one child, but helps many disabled, abused, abandoned, or neglected children suffering in poverty.
