At age 19, Luther Castillo left Honduras and his Garifuna community to attend the Latin American School of Medicine in Havana, Cuba (ELAM). Castillo and young people from over 50 countries have received medical training via the generosity and solidarity of the Cuban people and government.
Dr. Castillo and others returned to Honduras and immediately got to work providing health care for the People and with the community, built the first hospital in a Garifuna area. Since 2007 the hospital has provided almost half a million free consultations because health is a fundamental human right.
The coup against Pres. Manuel Zelaya created additional hardships but Luagu Hatuadi Waduhenu ("For the Health of Our People" in the Garifuna language) continues its work.
