AHCR Charity Work
AHCR has participated in our first charity effort as a new group! The Talamanca region of Costa Rica, located in the southern Caribbean, recently suffered from major flooding and landslides after a 9 day stretch of torrential rains in November. The flood displaced approximately 4,000 people in the area as well as severely damaged one of Costa Rica’s largest banana plantations leading to the loss of many jobs in the area. AHCR members did a fabulous job of sending money donations, food, clothing and other supplies to these families in need. Through a local association, ATEC (Talamanca Ecotourism and Conservation Association), we managed to deliver quite a substantial donation which is going primarily to the replacement of school supplies that were lost in the flood. I can’t imagine better spent money. I would like to thank the following AHCR members who so graciously participated in this very important charity effort.
