Salem lawyer seeking specs for Honduran mission

Salem lawyer Mark Claytor is looking to fill a seabag with donated used eyeglasses when he heads to Honduras in October for a medical mission trip.

Claytor isn’t a medical professional – he says his role with the mission is primarily “rolling pills and handing out stuff.” He’ll travel with four physicians, a psychiatrist, and several nurse practitioners and RNs to the village of Trinidad in Honduras.

Claytor said this will be his second trip to the medically under-served community. “People would hike four hours or more to get treatment for easily treatable diseases,” he said.

Claytor is looking for donations of eyeglasses. Any kind will do – prescription, readers, sunglasses, or others. “That seemed to me what was needed most,” he said. He’s also looking for small toys for the kids – matchbox-sized are preferred.

Claytor assures donors the items will be put to good use, and he promises pictures by e-mail on his return.
