Mama Tara Orphanage

Set on the southeastern edge of the biggest coastal lagoon, Laguna Caratasca, Puerto Lempira is the largest town in La Mosquitia. This is the location of the Mama Tara Miskito Orphanage which was started by Florinda Flores Blas, an elderly Miskito woman who was living in a condemned building on the waters of the lagoon.

In 2002 a man named Tracy Houpt saw the need of Mama Tara and the children, so he went back to the states and created a non-profit organization called Mama Tara Miskito Orphanage, Inc. This organization has been sponsoring the children and building an orphanage in which the children can grow up safe, strong and knowing the Lord.

Although Mama Tara has gone to be with the Lord in March of 2013, her dream lives on through a young missionary woman named Linda Collins who is now residing at the orphanage.
