Fundación Pro Beneficio de Puerto Armuelles is a nonprofit organization that was founded on August 24, 2011, by a group of of Panamanian professionals from the District of Barú.
The group was first organized by a group of Porteños who were concerned about Puerto Armuelles and the surrounding banana finca barrios, especially the most vulnerable; elderly, youth and families, after the social and economic collapse the town experienced when Chiquita Banana Company left the area. They conduct regular fundraisers and events to benefit the children, youth, and families. Many of their events are actually conducted in Panama City, where their office is located.
Mission: “Contribuir a que se produzca un cambio para mejor en nuestra sociedad ayudando a los más necesitados y a personas en situaciones de dificultad a mejorar sus vidas y su comunidad, brindando recursos, materiales alimenticios, promoviendo la movilidad social y reduciendo la distancia entre lo que nuestros beneficiarios son y lo que podrían llegar a ser mañana.” Translated: To contribute to a change for the better in our society by helping the needy and people in difficult situations to improve their lives and their community, providing resources, food materials, promoting social mobility and reducing the distance between what our beneficiaries are and what they could become tomorrow.
