San Pedro Fire Victims

$1,530 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 5 months
Created August 4, 2018
Last night (late night Friday, Aug 3) there was a huge fire here in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.  Approx. 80 people were left homeless and with all possessions destroyed.  One of these is a great employee of ours.  We are thankful he is safe but he (and others) lost everything.

we are trying to raise money for clothes, food and temporary shelter for these people. 10 structures, many of them apartments burnt to the ground, leaving approx. 80 ppl homeless.

We are in a small community, in a third world country.  Please help in any way you can.

You can read the entire story from our local news outlet, Ambergris Today:

If you are in San Pedro, we are accepting clothes, sheets, towels, supplies at our restaurant, Iguana Juan’s on Back Street in San Pedro.  All proceeds will go directly to families in need and to HOPE HAVEN, a non-profit community center (they are sheltering people and will be feeding 80 people THREE MEALS A DAY until further notice). We will be volunteering to cook dinner this Monday, August 6 and will share photos once we are there.

We are trying to get these families back up on their own feet as quickly as possible.

All help is so greatly appreciated.
