We are very proud and excited to announce that we've expanded our outreach internationally to Panama! This is an effort that has taken many months of preparation and hard work from our team and we wanted to share this very notable moment with you all! Thank you to our supporters, whether you have donated funds, time, or even just engage with us on social media, all of your support has allowed us to be able to now extend our efforts to individuals and families in need in Central America! We’d also like to thank our partners Good360! Without their guidance and support, we would not be the organization we have grown to be.
This 40-foot container will help distribute more than $50,000.00 worth of goods and essentials to people in need here in Panama. Items like:
Home improvement goods
Like us all, the people of Panama have been hit hard by COVID. The economic landscape makes it difficult for the vulnerable population to benefit from trade and commerce. This new program will make obtaining basic necessities and products readily available to those most in need. These items will help immensely as many have not been able to leave their homes because of COVID mandates or purchase these essentials because of financial hardships.
This opportunity has allowed us to avoid the waste of TONS of products that would have potentially ended up in a landfill. We are very hopeful to have continued success in our efforts to expand UMOK's capabilities to other countries in need.
