A group of families from Cariari de Pococí, in the province of Limón, delivered part of their harvests to families with economic needs in the Barras de Tortuguero sector, many of whom live off tourism activities, but who, since the crisis began due to COVID-19, have been seriously affected.

“The Finca El Trapiche Association wanted to make a donation of our crops, part of what we have and produced at a time when in Costa Rica we must be united,” said César Rodríguez, president of the Association.
