HOW CAN I HELP IN COSTA RICA?

As many of you know we are constantly working with our community leaders to help out in any way we can.  Anita Ortiz is one of those community leaders who dedicates a good  portion of her time to provide support and help to the less fortunate.  Anita is an active member of the Hope Fellowship Church in Playas del Coco.  Hope Fellowship has a number of outreach programs that have been extremely effective in the past.  When Covid hit the focus turned entirely to getting food on the tables of those who were out of work.

For some of us fortunate enough things have returned to normal but many in the margins are still struggling and their is still massive unemployment in Guanacaste.  Anita approached us to see how we could help with the reactivation of the outreach programs.  The highest priority program is “Seeds of Hope”.  Seeds of hope is a project that provides meals to 60 and up to 100 kids on the weekends at each of five feeding stations centered around critical need areas.  On a select case by case basis bags of food are distributed to mostly needy single moms and the elderly.

Toys for Tots 2022

For many of us it has been a great year of hard work and good results.  We are eternally thankful for that.  The fact remains that the economy in Guanacaste has not returned back to pre pandemic levels and the lower income families are still suffering from high unemployment and poverty.

There is nothing better to bring some Christmas cheer by seeing the smile on a kids face when they get a new toy.  Now it is time for the community to come together and spread some Christmas cheer and participate in the hugely popular TOYS FOR TOTS program coordinated by the Guanacaste Veterans Association.
