Pack For A Purpose
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination.
If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
We work with the San Cristóbal Shelter for the Elderly. The shelter functions as a non-profit entity whose mission is to accompany, attend and care for the elderly with limited resources, especially those who live on the street and do not have where to go and living on the charity of others.
The refuge provides comprehensive care, ensuring their physical and mental health and promoting active aging with dignity, through activities that correspond to the occupation of free time, mental and physical health and social inclusion to enhance cognitive and physical functions and to reduce the deterioration of the old age stage.
It currently cares for 62 elderly people and operates in its own headquarters.
