Reading helps us access important information and develop our imagination and mental capacities. Thanks to your help, our Libraries campaign was a success! We created a total of 18 libraries with vegetable boxes, donating 1500 books, including encyclopedias, children’s books and reading books. Thanks to all the volunteers!

P&G San José Costa Rica lent out a helping hand to COVID-19 patients through CADENA. The company trusted us in delivering personal hygiene kits, hand-in-hand, to those affected by the virus. This was done through voluntary women who are performing their work in in the Dr. Calderón Guardia Hospital and the Mexico Hospitals.
220 kits for men and 190 kits for women were delivered. We also donated 200 reusable facemasks from Mascarillas para Todos CR.
We’d like to thank Nelly Orozco for her great humanitarian work. Mrs. Orozco made 400 two-button-locks for the back of the facemasks. These locks protect the mastoid bone when using facemask all day.
We would like to thank Johnson and Johnson Chile for donating medical supplies to health centers dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Yester we delivered 62 plastic globes to the National Cancer Institutes, as well as 200 impermeable and reusable to overalls CESFAM La Granja, in the La Granja commune. We’d like to thank all the medical staff for their work during this pandemic.
Every day, migrants escaping Venezuela to look for a better life pass through the Chusacá Passage, in the border with Colombia. Many of them stay in Colombia, others continue walking towards Peru and Ecuador. Today we delivered cookies, socks, facemasks, antibacterial cream, wet wipes and soap. We’re making a difference, Hand in Hand!
It was a long ride, but full of expectation. We boarded a bus from Buseta de los Orange Taxis—one of our partners—and then another car in the municipality of Buenos Aires to cover a total of 5 hours of roads.
This was CADENA’s first mission catered to indigenous communities in the south of Costa Rica. P&G San José Costa Rica delivered Always sanitary pad in the Cantón of Buenos Aires of Puntarenas. Many girls and adolescents skip classes on a regular basis due to a lack of these hygiene pads. Always believes that puberty is the best moment to help build up a woman’s self-esteem; this is why we delivered 8,000 sanitary pads to 300 young women.
We visited the Rural Tsikriyök Liceum, in Yuavin, a Bribri de Cabagra indigenous community. The last 27 km where spent on a slippery and muddy road. Sonia Rojas, the school’s principal, told us that students walk 2 hours to get there. The building is new but there is no internet, no electricity, no running water and no phone signal.
“These are very por families and the pandemic has made everything much worse,” states Mrs. Roja, “we only see our students once a month, we can’t meet with them virtually.”
Besides battling COVID, the community suffers from gastrointestinal diseases due to lack of access to clean water. Besides delivering CR Masks for Everyone to families we donated 15 water filters and taught the locals how to use them. Thanks to Labimed Clinical Analysis we were able to measure the quality of the water. We also talked to the girls privately to discuss sexual hygiene and other topics.
After this we visited the San Rafael de Cabagra and Salitre Lyceums, communities located closer to Buenos Aires with better access to health, communications and internet—but with the same water and road issues.
Rafael Delgado—the Coordinator of the Local Council of Indigenous Briby Education and board member of the San Rafael de Cabagra Rural Liceum— believes that there are still many educational obstacles in the community. “We need to integrate the Bribri language in the curriculum so that it is not lost forever,” Delgado stated, “and also integrate health, education, environmental, sexual education and pandemic-related topics.” This was a truly an enriching experience. We were in awe with the local leaders and like to thank José Rocas, mayor of Buenos Aires, in the Buenos Aires Municipality, for helping us with the transportation. Also, Sonia Rojas for all her assistance. The mission was full of life lessons.
CADENA volunteers traveled to the community of Cihuatlán after Tropical Storm Hernan left it without potable water and food. The team was made up of psychologists and doctors.
