Family-Supporter of the Month..... meet Migdalia of FPI

august family

Migdalia Rios is the secretary at Fundacion de Pro-Integracion (FPI), the Handicapped Foundation, located south of Boquete. She came to FPI with her handicapped daughter several years ago and when her daughter passed away in 2012, Migdalia continued on at FPI. Migdalia is now the on-site supervisor who helps make medical appointments, arrange hospital visits and obtain medicine for the more than sixty members of the FPI community. Most FPI members are poor and require almost constant care. In fact, physical therapy is now provided by volunteers.

With Migdalia’s help, Buenos Vecinos, supports the FPI clients and families who meet the BVB criteria for monthly food assistance. She conducts the BVB interview of FPI members and others in the community. In addition, Migdalia helps with the organization of the monthly food pack which is conducted at the Handicap Center.

FPI can always use volunteers and donations; stop by any Saturday 9 am- 1 pm to meet Migdalia and the incredible members of the FPI community.


BVB Food Drive at Boquete Romero’s Saturday August 6th 9am-3pm

Gail and Rodny

Our volunteers will be collecting specific food items and cash donations. We will have examples of the non-perishable items we provide our BVB clients each month. It’s easy to pick up something for our BVB families while you’re shopping for yours. We provide these food staples to over 100 truly needy individuals and families in the greater Boquete community. Or, if you prefer to make a cash donation, please know that it goes a long way because we purchase food at wholesale prices. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!

Coming soon......  a cookbook featuring BVB - FPI members' recipes translated in both English and Spanish.
