    EAGLES WINGS

    It goes without saying that the pandemic has affected us in a significant way. However, despite this, Villa del Palmar Cancún and the Tafer Corporation, through the Eagles Wings Foundation, make the effort to continue supporting, although not with the same amount as previous years. We are sure that better times will come, and this foundation will achieve the goal of touching and transforming lives and the environment. We deeply appreciate the effort and all the volunteers of Villas del Palmar Cancun and the Tafer Corporation.

    Sometimes we feel that what we do is just a drop in the sea, but the sea would be less if it lacked a drop”

    Casa Connor / Pasitos de Luz New Facility Construction

    Eagle’s Wings Foundation has supported construction for the new facility in different construction phases since it began in November 2011. Great progress has been made in building this children’s facility through hard work and dedication with the partnership of these two organizations and countless volunteers and multiple donors for this project.

    Pasitos de Luz, a non-profit organization that serves the special needs of disabled children and their low income families who live in and around the communities of Puerto Vallarta. Pasitos de Luz supports more than 140 children in total but can only support a small number on any given day due to the size of their current building.

    CLINICA SANTA BARBARA AC ROOF REPAIR PROJECT

    The roof began deteriorating in October 2002 as a result of Hurricane Kenna and continued being damaged over time, and by the animals that live in the area (raccoons, opossums, iguanas and lizards). This caused flooding year after year not only by the flow of water from the floor but also by the water coming in from the roof each rainstorm, which also caused damage and deterioration of equipment and material for therapies.

    In 2010, one of our patients’ father who works at CEMEX told us about the “Lazos Familiares” program and the request was made through him.

    In 2013, after evaluating the different projects that they presented to their customers in this area, we heard from CEMEX staff, who visited us as well as other institutions in the area, that our project was the selected winner for support.
