A total of 542 Guanacaste families affected by the Covid-19 crisis were beneficiaries of the solidarity campaign for the distribution of food and hygiene products conducted by Guanacaste Airport.
The distribution and delivery of packages began in December 2020 and lasted during the first semester of 2021. The beneficiary families were from different regions of Guanacaste, including Liberia, Tilarán, Guayabo, Guardia, Playa Panamá, Nosara and even Upala.
Engine of the development
“Guanacaste Airport is the engine of the development of this province. We know that the crisis has impacted us all, but we are convinced that together we can move forward. Thus, through the VINCI Foundation for the city, the #Positive Mobility of the VINCI and Coriport Airports have decided to lead this campaign to support hundreds of Guanacaste families with food and hygiene products. We reaffirm our commitment to the well-being of the community and to the dissemination of positive mobility as part of our values”, said César Jaramillo, General Manager of Guanacaste Airport.
The selection of beneficiaries was carried out by the Asociación Obras del Espíritu Santo and by the Food Bank of Costa Rica. A group of eleven volunteers from Guanacaste Airport contributed in the tasks of distributing packages to families.
