Family of the Month


Family of the month - March 2017

Meet Jeany and Her Family


Tiny Jeany is three years old, but she is still no bigger than her two year old brother. This little spark plug smiles and laughs with family and friends and brightens everyone’s day. She lives with her six siblings, her aunt and her Grandma Ana is a one-room cement block structure far up the mountain from Boquete.

There is no electricity nor running water in the house. Living almost within a cloud forest, this family is often cold and wet and depends on the outdoor cook stove for warmth. Jeany and her brothers and sisters were first abandoned by their father when she was only two years old; tragically, her mother also abandoned the family a few months later, leaving them all in the keeping of their grandmother.

To make room for everyone in the house, Grandma Ana now sleeps in the chicken coop at night. She has told us that she is glad for help in the form of monthly food deliveries from Buenos Vecinos that include the nourishing MannaPack supplemented rice from the Amigos de Boquete Foundation. The family also cherishes the soft warm hats, sweaters and blankets lovingly provided by the Boquete Knitters and Quilters.

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