Getting Involved With Your Community in Panama

mary taft panamaListen to the replay of the July 11th conference call with Mary Taft who came on a Panama Relocation Tour with her daughters then relocated to Panama in 2018.  Mary lives in Alto Quiel which is about 20 minutes North of downtown Boquete.  She is very involved with her community by volunteering at Salvadores de Animales, an organization that rescues and fosters dogs and cats.    In this call Mary talks about:

♦ Why she moved to Panama
♦ What she likes most about living in Panama
♦ Getting involved in the community
♦ Special needs during Covid
♦ How not to burn out
♦ and much more

alto quiel panamaSalvadores is also providing pet food to people who have lost their job because of the pandemic.  This makes it possible for them to continue to take care of their pets instead of abandoning them.  In an effort to help Salvadores raise money to pay for vet bills and pet food, Panama Relocation Tours will donate 10% of all proceeds from our Online Panama Relocation Guide purchased before July 31st.  Salvadores also accept donations on their website. 

Many of the towns in Panama have charities that you can get involved with like the Rotary Club, handicap foundations, charities that help feed needy people, hospice, spay & neuter clinics, knitting hats for newborn babies, etc etc etc.  When you move to Panama you should check out which charities are available in your area so you can find ways to get involved and give back!
