Save San Luis Forest, Save This Family, Costa Rica

“Save San Luis, Save This Family” project received its final donation and was completely funded a few days before Christmas. Thank you all for your generous donations to this project.

I was so excited that I called Mariano and Alba immediately. They were ecstatic, especially after all that they have been through this past year. The loss of their son, Josue, Alba’s cancer that went into remission and is now back plus the constant financial need they live with year after year.

When LRFF receives the final disbursement for this project from Global Giving I will post a new progress report so that you can all see the Monge family receive the check to preserve this beautiful, tropical forest for the first year.

Thank you again from all of us here in Costa Rica for your great generosity.
