The Javi Gema Help Corporation (also known as the Child Help Fund) is an organization designed to help children in need locally, across the country, and internationally. The scope of the Child Help Fund’s mission is quite broad, but we are currently working to achieve more specific local, national, and international goals.

The name of the Corporation 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. They are a well known family in their community and although their lifestyle is modest, they greatly enrich the lives of those around them. After Javier died, they continued to care for their other two young children Gema, age 12; and Andres age 9.

Two years later a similar heartcondition 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 money to help Javier and Gema’s brother Andres receive proper diagnosis and treatment to avoid the early death that took his brother and sister.
The Javi Gema Help Corporation was orignially formed to raise money so that the Lara Family could take Andres to a competent specialist in hopes that with continuing treatment, he may live to fulfill his own dreams as well as those of his siblings.

 

While striving to accomplish that initial objective, the Javi Gema Help Corporation has expanded to come to the aid of other children who manifest a need. The Corporation is no longer focused on the medical needs of one child, but helps disadvantaged children who have been ravaged by poverty, or who have been victims of violent or sexual crimes.
