Food Baskets

In March 2020 Covid-19 hit the Dominican Republic. In 3 weeks time all hotels were empty and tourism was gone. In a split second thousands and thousands of people got unemployed as there was no work anymore in tourism. This affected not only the employees in the hotels and the tourist activities, but also those who produce the souvenirs, the employees who work in the factories to provide the hotels from food and drinks etc.

Elbia Tours and Rotary Club Puerto Plata started a fundraise to provide food baskets to support families with some basic needs. Over 1000 food baskets were delivered. This collaboration went very well. Partly because so many friends of Elbia Tours supported this fundraise.

The basket had basic food like oil, rice, pasta, milk. Basics to prepare some simple meals for the family.

Every time we went out with some volunteers to deliver the baskets wit a truck for the real country side and some cars. Nobody get paid to do this job or got any compensation for the gas, that was used for the cars.
