Celebration of Caring

Making a Donation

Many of the impoverished families, workers and volunteers in the Bolivian community supported by HOPE do not have funds to buy food and safe water. Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in the southern Hemisphere and most of its residents live hand to mouth and must work daily to eat. The Bolivian government has restricted residents to their homes because the government is aware that the health care system cannot handle a pandemic (only 11 ventilators in La Paz - a city of 2 million). If the infection spreads people will die - so the government has shut down all businesses and made it illegal for residents to leave their homes except to purchase groceries once a week.

As many of you realize, we did not have a Celebration of Caring golf tournament in 2019 due to three members of the planning/operation teams having deaths in their families. The golf tournament had previously provided nearly $230,000 in funding over the past five years to assist Bolivia's most materially impoverished children and families. All the past benevolence contributions have been used and the need is dire to purchase food for some of the most vulnerable families.

Celebration of Caring is a-US based 501(c)3 non-profit that is already directly connected to La Paz and funds can be transferred immediately. Please consider Making a Donation.

The goal of Foundation HOPE worldwide Bolivia (FHwwB) is to bring hope and change the lives of Bolivia's most impoverished populations who lack access to quality healthcare, adequate nutrition, safe living environments and/or educational support. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work collaboratively with other service organizations to connect resources to needs, support, and empower these vulnerable families and children through various initiatives in health and social programs.
