Mr. President Please Open the Airport!

June 18, 2020 – Palmira, Carrillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

It has been about 3 months since we have been working with the local communities, volunteers and your donations to provide much needed food and supplies to the most needy families in our little corner of paradise.  So what changed this time?  Well being good capitalists and knowing that it is not good for anyone to just receive handouts and not do something in exchange we decided to require every town who got aid to clean up their streets on the day we deliver them aid.

So here is what happened – and it is not what you would expect…  We had previously identified 53 families in the community of Palmira that were in need of food and supply packages.  And we told them that everyone who was on the list to get a package had to come out in the morning and help do a street and yard clean up.  We partnered with Patas y Manos like always who in turn coordinated the clean up with the assistance of the Municipality of Carrillo.  So instead of the 53 families, over 200 people showed up to not only clean the streets but to clear out backyards of garbage and items that could be a potential Dengue nests.

PACIFICO Costa Rica Coronavirus Aid June 11, 2020

This week we partnered with PACIFICO Costa Rica who funded the entire cost of feeding and providing much needed supplies to 100 families in the local communities of Sapal, Santa Rita and Guardia. Once again we have been blessed with much needed donations to continue aiding needy families week after week.  As you can see we are like a well oiled machine and what started as reluctant and embarrassed looks on the peoples faces have now changed to relief and gratitude.  To all that have helped no matter how large or small – it has been a godsend to these hard working folks and they really and truly appreciate it – you can just tell.
