Volunteers in Action

Bringing joy to the children and young people of Panama and Brazil during the year-end parties




As has become a tradition each year, in December the Bank’s Volunteer Committee handed out gifts and organized recreational and cultural activities for over 750 children and young people from organizations that work together with Fundación Crece Latinoamérica, the foundation carrying out Bladex’s social work. In Panama, the volunteers spent time with students from the Marie Poussepin Educational Center, Hogar Divina Gracia shelter and the El Bale Community Center in, Veraguas.  In Sao Paulo, Brazil, the volunteers organized a Christmas party for hearing-impaired children from the Fundación Brascri.
