Los Ramos Rural Tourism Donations
They are working on cleaning up the community and they would like to purchase 8 plastic barrels for trash and put them around the community. They also need to buy several tarps or several pieces of zinc roofing sheets so they can make a top for the plastic trash bins in the rainy season.
Donations are welcome, thank you for all of your efforts!
