In light of the devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on Bahia de Banderas' tourism-based economy, we've established an Emergency Response Fund (ERF) to assist the Human Connections community. 100% of donations made to the ERF will be channeled into economic relief activities that directly support our partners' livelihoods.

La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Food Pantry
Many folks and groups around town are working together to set up a FOOD PANTRY for any townsperson in need. One neighbor has counted at least 50 families that need help NOW. There will undoubtedly be more. We will use your contribution to buy provisions locally and distribute rice, beans, corn meal, garden seeds, and more. Your gift goes a long way!
Donate at GoFundMe

Puerto Vallarta Nightlife Relief Fund
The purpose of the Puerto Vallarta Nightlife Relief Fund (PVNRF) is to provide financial assistance to workers in the nightlife industry as the current crisis continues. People in the PV nightlife literally live off their tips since the minimum wage is only 120 pesos ($4.91 USD) per day and with no stimulus controls or government assistance in sight, they need our help now more than ever.
