About Us

Mission & Vision

Mission

To promote the process of transformation in the communities we serve through physical, spiritual, social, and economic wellness.

Vision

As a Christian organization, our vision is wholeness: physical, spiritual, social, economic and environmental health according to God’s redemptive plan.

Our Name

Predisan’s name describes our purpose.

It comes from two Spanish words, “predicar y sanar”, meaning “to proclaim” and “to heal”.

In Luke 9:2, Jesus sent out the apostles “to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.”

We too are about “Proclaiming Jesus, Healing Lives”.

Our History

Predisan was founded in 1986 when Dr. Robert Clark, his wife, Doris, and their two children, Robert Jr. and Kendra, moved from Atlanta to Honduras. Their goal was to teach basic health care principles and techniques to community health volunteers in Catacamas and to nearby mountain villages. A year later after the Clarks began work, Dr. Amanda Madrid, a well-known health leader in Honduras, joined Predisan and became the founding medical director. Her first project was establishing CEREPA, the Center for Rehabilitation of Patients with Addictions.In 1987, the original Good Samaritan Clinic was established and initially saw patients on a limited basis. Although Dr. Clark died in 1994, founding missionary Doris Clark continued as a revered counselor in Predisan’s work. Dr. Madrid continues as Chief Executive Officer, overseeing all the direct medical care and public health services Predisan provides.
The faith and vision of Predisan’s early founders have grown in amazing ways. Their leadership means that thousands of people have received medical care, a healthier environment, education, treatment for addictions, and have heard the saving message of Jesus Christ.
