While the world may be in a somber state, now, more than ever, is when we need to bring forward all the light that still surrounds us. We may be but a small island in the Caribbean, but we are one strong, unified community, that is coming together to support each other when we need it most!
Our team would like to put a spotlight on some of the local businesses and organizations here in Aruba that are doing all they can to lend a helping hand to the community during these challenging times!
Charities & Foundations
This amazing group spends their personal time delivering anything and everything possible to those who need it most! From groceries, to medical supplies and important documents… all at no charge! They’ve also teamed up with Ajudo Aruba to deliver free food items, fully prepared meals and essential products to those families who are struggling during this challenging time. Do you want to support their efforts? Or make use of their generous services? Contact them via telephone or WhatsApp!
No Child Goes Hungry
A selfless group of people have come together with one common goal, to ensure that the children of Aruba have access to the food they need, every day. With the abundance of hotel, restaurant and casino closures many people have found themselves out of a job. This has resulted in a loss of income and in turn not always being able to put food on the table for their children and families. If you are able to help out, please know, no amount is too small, and any and every donation will make a difference!
