Kirkland Extends Effort to Help Feed Families in Honduras
Kirkland & Ellis LLP information governance analyst Ramiro Ocasio and firm partner Jon Henes created the Foundation for Education in Honduras in 2014 to build and refurbish schools in high-need areas of Honduras.
As those communities now face COVID-19, the organization is launching a program called Feeding FEIH to help feed about 1,600 Honduran families facing layoffs and lack of food due to the pandemic.
More than 2,000 Honduran students are currently attending schools founded by the organization, which so far total 12 with another on the way, the firm said. In addition to raising money, the foundation is also working to provide food, biosecurity gear such as thermometers, and transportation for the volunteers in Honduras that are packaging and delivering the food.
