In 2017 we also were honored to have Joss Stone, singer-songwriter, as a part of her Total World Tour. She visited our work in La Carpio and shared an insightful morning in the community. Below is a video about her visit to the CRHF. “In the middle of our Total World Tour, whilst in Costa Rica we met up the amazing Gail who founded The Costa Rican Humanitarian Foundation (CRHF). Their mission is to develop creative and economical solutions to a wide range of social problems in Costa Rica. Gail and her volunteers have done some incredible work and have worked hard to provide a better quality of life for those in need. We saw all the wonderful projects which they’re involved in.“
In 2016, a group of REEF Ambassadors visited the Family Well Being Center in Playa Uvita/Dominical and leant a helping hand on the construction of the center. They also provided a financial donation which was used for materials to finish the construction and finalizing the payment on the property. This video created by the REEF We Heart program is very inspirational. We are very grateful for their contribution to the Costa Rican Humanitarian Foundation and their program.
This is a video made by one of the group of dental/medical mission. It was an amazing experience…and we saw more than 400 patients both dental and medical. And we taught a lot about self care and prevention of illness. And, the Costa Rican and the US professionals got along great. Wonderful experience for all…the patients loved them too!
