ABOUT MISSION PREDISAN:
Mission Predisan — of which CEREPA is a part — was founded in 1986 in Catacamas, Honduras, by the late Dr. Robert Clark and his family. Their original goal was to share the compassion of Christ by providing basic health care while working with the staff and students of the Honduran Bible School. Dr. Amanda Madrid, Predisan’s founding medical director, joined the mission a year later.
Today, Predisan serves the needy of Honduras at a large family health center; at CEREPA, its addiction treatment center founded in 1987; and at seven rural and mountain clinics. A staff of more than 70 Hondurans provide health and education services through more than 42,000 patient and client contacts annually.
Mission Predisan, a non-profit Honduran corporation, oversees the ministry. Predisan-USA, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, supports its work through fund-raising and development.
