Local Community Project - Marine Mammal Rescue Program
The Isa Mundo Foundation completed its first Local Community Project in Vancouver,BC. The majority of our projects have focussed internationally in less fortunate communities in developing countries, but we also believe that it is important to support local community projects that are making a difference. The Marine Mammal Rescue Program (MMRP) is affiliated with the Vancouver Aquarium and provides housing and care for ill, injured, or abandoned marine mammals and rehabilitates them for release back into their natural habitat.
Isa Mundo visited the MMRP facility to assess how we can support their initiative. We learned that the MMRP is in need of various supplies, materials and equipments and one of their priorities was a cooler to store food and supplies. Isa Mundo was able to partner with Saputo, the largest dairy processor and snack-cake manufacturer in Canada, to provide a cooler to the MMRP. Saputo kindly donated the cooler as part of their commitment to support local causes and organizations in order to give back to the communities who have sustained and helped them grow. On May 14th, Alan Yau, Saputo Sales Representative
and Isa Mundo delivered the cooler to Lindsaye Akhurst, Manager of MMRP.
