GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY

Roatán has been adopted as our home, and we are thankful to live in such a supportive, welcoming community. As a developing country, there are many areas that need help, and non-profits that are working towards improving healthcare, education, security and environment. Organizations that receive support from Barefoot Cay include:

We support the clinic through financial donations, in-kind donations for fundraising auction events, and by encouraging guests to bring medical supplies or leaving a financial donation
