Praise for an organization that advocates for the progress of the underprivileged in Latin American countries through a hands-on approach to fundraising efforts and the transparent distribution and utilization of donations and fundamental resources- including but not limited to: first aid, hygiene products, food, water and disaster recovery supplies. With continued support, the founder of this organization is able to personally oversee the delivery of donor contributions on the ground, provide hands-on guidance and manage projects for which funding has been specifically allocated.
