Thanks to all of our supporters the Lifeguard Program at Cocles Beach (the most visited beach in the area) has continued saving lives since 2002, when 5 people drowned in only 8 days!
As of April 1, 2012, the program has a deficit of -36,991 colones. If we do not receive additional donations in the coming days, we will be forced to temporarily suspend the program. Not only does a suspension put at risk the lives of too many people but the layoff is a slap in the face for our well trained and highly responsible lifeguards.
To help avoid this crisis, please:
- Consider making a generous donation during our special Easter Week Donation Drive to get rid of our deficit and prevent suspension of the program
- Catch up on any pending monthly donations
- Increase your regular donation if you can
- If you’re not participating, join this noble community effort to save lives
Please see the Donate page for information on how you can make a donation.
