Thanks to people like you we were able to get supplies to the people on the Mosquito Coast or "Moskitia" . These people have no roads to the remote area on the coast that was devastated by back to back hurricanes. Supplies have to be brought by air or sea.
The people here make a living by free diving up to 150 feet to collect sea cucumbers, lobster, and conch. Many develop the bends from rapid ascents and end up in wheelchairs by the age of 40. They sell the goods to North America and Asia.
These supplies included PPE equipment, food and water. During this visit it was discovered there is a great need for the 700 plus families with babies that need milk. Food and Water. This will be our next goal.
