Project CHIMES (California Honduras Institute for Medical and Education Support) is a Sacramento, California-based non profit dedicated to raising money to help indigenous peoples in Central and South America gain access to basic medical services.

You can read about our first important project, helping the Garifuna people on the Caribbean coastal region of South America, on our projects page. Their story is an extraordinary tale of survival, adaptation and endurance spanning two continents and 350 years, and they need our help to ensure that they can remain on the land which they've inhabited for hundreds of years.

In order for us to continue our important work, we need your donations today. Click here to donate using our secure online system from PayPal, and we will put your valuable contribution work helping these indigenous people get the basic services they deserve.
