By BBN Staff: Tropic Air, as part of its ongoing #TropicGivesBack charitable campaign, donated $635 to the Liberty Children’s Home in Ladyville on Wednesday morning.
A check was presented to Agatha Valentine of the Liberty Children’s Home by Tropic Air Belize district station manager Rudolph Perez and staff member Francis Trujeque.
“The child-centered care Liberty provides to the Belize City community is truly fantastic”, said John Greif III, Tropic Air’s president. “It was an honor to make this donation on behalf of our customers, and we hope it will aid the organization’s efforts to continue with their mission. At Tropic we strive for our employees to be inspired to enhance and serve the communities in which we live and work. We want them to be agents of positive change on the issues that impact the quality of life for members of the community.”
Every month a different Tropic Air station is tasked with selecting a charitable organization in their community as part of the #TropicGivesBack initiative. Liberty was chosen for the month of August. Through the initiative, for every ticket sold at that month’s particular station, $1 is donated to an organization chosen by the staff.
The #TropicGivesBack program moves to the Belize International Airport this month and to San Pedro in October.
The Liberty Children’s Home is a sanctuary for children in need, providing a natural environment, love, nurturing, and a high standard of education. Situated in Ladyville, on the outskirts of Belize City, Liberty Children’s Home is unique in its commitment to child-centered care and education. The home’s philosophy has been influenced by the Pikler method of childcare, a well-researched approach developed to prevent the damaging effects of institutionalization on children.
