    Project #1

    Rescue Paws Curaçao supports over 450 adopted dogs. They are a non-profit organization that stands for reducing animal suffering in Curaçao. They do this by taking care of mistreated and abandoned dogs. The dogs that are taken care of at Rescue Paws Curaçao are cared for so that they can then be adopted, both on the island and elsewhere.

    Project #2

    Birgen di Rosario Foundation, supporting over 425 beneficiaries, has been an essential provider of intramural and semi-mural elderly care in Curaçao for 75 years. The foundation has five facilities: Richardushuis, Nos Lanterno, Huize Welgelegen, Monastery Alverna and Day Care Mi Amparo. In addition, the foundation offers the option of independent living.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of October 1, 2022
    Note: Location is approximated. If you see a lodging that is misplaced or missing, please contact us .

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
