Family of the Month

Family of the month - October 2016

Meet Wilberto and his mother Bertina


Wilberto, 46, has been bed-ridden and living with his mother in Potrerillos Abajo ever since he was shot and partially paralyzed in a robbery attempt at Wilberto’s place of business. On that day he lost his mobility and his livelihood. Friends and family have rallied around him to help him find a hospital bed and to get him to doctor’s and physical therapist’s appointments. Now he needs a wheelchair, which he hopes “to borrow for a short time”. Wilberto says he is determined to walk again, and to work again to help support his mother. Wilberto and his mom are only two of the many clients you can help feed every month.  Support the BVB non-perishable food program today.

If you would like to help families like this and the efforts of Buenos Vecinos de Boquete, your financial support would be most appreciated.

When you make that important decision to help feed the less fortunate in our community, you have truly become a “good neighbor”.  When you donate $360 a year or $30 a month (about the cost of a daily latte), your name will be added to our “Coconut Foundation” as an acknowledgement of your concern and generosity. 

Buenos Vecinos de Boquete’s wholesale purchase power enables us to furnish our clients more food than they could purchase on their own in the store with the same amount of money.


Thank you!
