Bella Aventura was looking for a way to support a needy part of the population of Tibás, the place where our office is located. Then we realized the “Hogar Brotes de Olivo”. The mission of this institution is to welcome children from 0 to 5 years old who have been separated from their biological families.
For these children “Hogar Brotes de Olivo” is their home, a very important place that provides security to the youngest. Bella Aventura supports this institution with various aids and donations.
Enjoy your deserved vacations in this wonderful country and at the same time be happy that your donations make a child smile!

Non-Perishable Food Items:
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.
