Supporting Heroes

Since the start of the COVID19 lockdown and travel bans, Isa Mundo has shifted its efforts in collaborating with local projects and organizations including providing much needed support to health care workers in our communities.

Isa Mundo is always looking to partner and with the help of Panago Pizza, we were able to deliver food to health care workers at the Langley Memorial Hospital, Langley BC. At the very least, we can help feed as many heroes as we can in the hospital and hope that we can make a small difference and to let them know we are thankful for all they do.

We are also grateful for the support of Panago and we hope to continue the partnership in the future.

Thank you to all the health care workers at the Langley Memorial Hospital. Your selfless service to the community is helping us all get through these tough times.

One Door Leads to Another

From time to time, we connect with people who are just as passionate about their work as they are with giving back to communities. We are always grateful when Isa Mundo meets such people and businesses to collaborate on a common goal.

As we look for additional storage for donations and create usable meeting space for volunteers, we need to be innovative in finding solutions during this COVID crisis. As we renovate a small garage space we needed to ensure it is secured and safe. Our volunteer contacted Lions Gate Garage Doors Ltd. (Alfredo) to provide a quote for a new garage door. Upon arriving on-site, Alfredo was able to provide sound advice and found a cost effective solution for our project. Alfredo was also keen on learning more about Isa Mundo and committed to helping us. Alfredo was able to contact North West Door (NWD) and in turn, NWD donated a garage door free of charge. Lions Gate Garage Doors Ltd. (LGGD) matched the in-kind donation by providing free labour to complete the project. 

Isa Mundo Foundation committed to donate to the Boca Education Project in Boca de Tomatlan, Mexico on behalf of LGGD and NWD based on their contributions. Our organization wanted to pay forward this kind gesture and continue to support our projects in communities we serve. We will be focusing on providing food hampers for families in Boca de Tomatlan via the local Food Bank. We will send an update from the community once our support reaches Boca in the coming week.

Thank you to North West Door and Lions Gate Garage Door Ltd, specially Alfredo - for their commitment to support our work and improve the lives of those less fortunate.
