Utila's economy depends on tourism, and many residents have been financially affected by the pandemic's negative impact on tourism. We're ensuring that all residents of Utila have access to fresh food staples and non-perishables.
Providing supplemental supplies and resources to the health clinics on Utila, We've been providing vitamins and medications, and are working towards securing additional medical equipment. Our immediate efforts are directed towards Covid-19 prevention and relief.
Our partner Jasper's Utila Animal Shelter facilitates our animal welfare program. We're proud to be able to offer support to their mission of keeping pets healthy and rescuing animals in need of help and a loving home.
We seek to improve the educational resources available on Utila, and to help ensure the youth of today is best positioned to be the leader's of tomorrow. We are currently partnered with existing schools on the island, and plan to assist in additional facilities in the future.
A large amount of Utila's economy is based on Scuba Dive tourism, thanks to being located on the world's second largest coral reef. We work with local partners to supplement their ocean clean up efforts, as well as general environmental assistance on land.
When problems arise, we're here to help. During the pandemic, we've supplied gasoline to the island volunteer watch team and to the quarantine area's generator, helping keep the island safe, and return Utilian's home. We are a solution focused organization.
