The goal was to raise enough money for 400 food packages by May 15th, 2020. Thanks to your generous support, we not only met it early but surpassed our goal with a total of $20,350 being raised.

Although we are not fundraising specifically for food at this time, you can help replenish our General Community Development Fund.thanks to your generous support, we’ve met it early!

In Mexico, those already struggling have seen their work hours drastically reduced.

Families who were just getting by before the pandemic are now seeing their work cut back without any safety nets. By sharing what we have to provide the basics, we can let them know that we truly are all in this together.

Can I still help?

Our Community Development Fund goes towards providing much-needed assistance for families living in the communities that we work alongside.

As the situation continues to unfold, we will be staying in close contact to do everything we can help those who are in need during this time.

Many families in the the Dominican Republic have been left extremely vulnerable.

As tourism dried up, so did the incomes of many who were already living in poverty. We were receiving some desperate requests for help and knew that we had to do something. By sharing what you have, you can help families through this difficult time.
