Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Help us join together to help Guanacaste, Costa Rica families and businesses to produce meals and support for all that are struggling with no employment and financial hardship during the COVID-19 crisis. This area of Costa Rica is 99% dependent on Tourism. With the whole world shut down, their livelihoods are shut down. These are hard working, loving people that had the rug pulled out from under them. Sharky's will be joined by several other restaurants in the area to use its kitchen and staff to cook-prepare meals to deliver to as many people as possible. We'll be implementing this process with respect to the recommended social distancing and health standards set by local governments. In addition to pre-prepared food, we will also be working with other organizations to deliver pantry and other essential items to those in need. We need your help to keep these families fed during this time of crisis. WE NEED LOTS OF HELP TO IMPLEMENT. Those of you in the area that are interested in this initiative or know someone who can help, please contact via text or whatsapp only to 8729-8274 #TamarindoStrong #DoMoreBeMore Thanks for caring!
September 3rd Maria's life changed forever when she heard a knock on her door. She opened the door to two officers with the news that her husband had passed away. Her immediately thought was that it had been a work accident since he does roofing. However, he had just collapsed while working. The toughest part was that he was working out of town, 6 hours away, and Maria could not go to him until he was sent to home. He was a healthy young man with so many dreams & goals, living the American dream. He was a hard working man, working 7 days a week from morning to night, to provide for his family. He has left behind his wife and 3 beautiful kids ages 8, 5 & 1. Please pray for the family during this difficult time, for peace & healing for the family, especially for his precious babies.
A group of four of us will be heading to Haiti on December 13th. We’ll be meeting up with our partner, Farmer John’s butcher shop, to add on to the building. PUR is a 30% partner in the butcher shop. Farmer John’s is dramatically changing the definition of business in Haiti. https://www.farmerjohnshaiti.com/ To see some of the projects in Haiti, check out www.friendsofifosud.org • 80% of the proceeds go back into ministry opportunity in country. • FJ’s provides an avenue for every family with a stick and a cow/goat to bring their animal to market. Most do not have any way to get revenue from their animals… until Farmer John’s • Provides a stable source of clean protein for both high end resorts and local families in Haiti. Farmer John’s has been asked to build a facility to process and can chicken to have on site for disaster relief when hurricanes come. It’s a huge opportunity to bring revenue as well as providing assistance to those in need when disaster strikes! At a time when most people are pulling out of Haiti due to corruption, we’re wanting to double down. Without a doubt, Farmer John’s is becoming a rock for industry in Haiti to build on. This trip will be focusing on two things. • Building the cannery/processing plant for disaster relief. • Having a Christmas party at 3 schools and delivering stockings and gifts to roughly 800 kids. We’d love for you guys to get as excited about these projects as us. If you’re looking for a worthy cause to support, this is it! Long term or Christmas donations, it will all go to making a difference in Haiti. Budget: $20,000 Kid’s meals/stockings 800 at $10/child = $8,000 Building Construction (concrete only) $12,000 ish for this phase. www.purinternational.org www.farmerjohnshaiti.com www.friendsofifosud.org www.loveachild.com
Carlos passed away tragically on December 10th. He leaves behind his loving wife Hannah and their 4 year old son, Carlos Jr. After battling breast cancer a couple of years ago (which left her paralyzed), Hannah will be battling again. She'll be battling being a single mother, battling loss, battling heartache. Lets not let Hannah battle alone. Finances, prayer, emotional support. Lets flood her loving family with everything we have to offer! PUR International will match $5,000 on this PUR Campaign. Lets get that number much higher! Anyone who knew Carlos would tell you, he was the life of the party. Whether we were working, riding four wheelers, or enjoying a few drinks he brought the energy. He was a leader, the kind we all strived to be. The guy knew how to provide purpose, motivation, and direction. Everyone who served with Carlos knew he lived by the NCO Creed and respected him as a leader and a man. He cared about people, he saw the good in every situation, he could turn the darkest hour into something to laugh about later. Carlos was a husband, a father, a friend, and a soldier. He was many things to a lot of people. He's going to be greatly missed and never forgotten.
