Emergency Food Relief in response to the Corona Virus: Phase III
Your generous support of Futuro Brillante will ensure that we are able to feed as many families as possible during the Corona Virus crisis.
Thanks to a very generous additional donation of $10,000 from our founders at Punta Sabana Developments SRL, we plan to continue our Emergency Food Program for an additional 3 months. Since March, we have served more than 400 families with more than 62,000 pounds of food & personal care donations.
While we don't know exactly what the future holds, we can expect to experience the devastating economic impacts of the pandemic in Matapalo for many months to come. In Phase III, we will focus our efforts on 200 of the most vulnerable families who we have served during the last six months by providing a monthly food basket. These families will include senior citizens, single mothers, and large families with small children.
The area where we operate, which primarily relies on tourism to sustain the economy, has been very suddenly and deeply impacted by the pandemic. Many families who were barely making ends meet before the crisis have now lost their only source of income. The levels of poverty in our region are going to get much more extreme. Please help us ensure that all members of our community have enough food to eat while we get through this very difficult time together. Many thanks in advance for your generosity.
