Mama Vilma Family Home receives donation


From the 7th to the 11th of November, 2012, the 2012 Global Asset Protection and Investment Symposium was hosted by Exotic Caye Beach Resort on Ambergris Caye. The forum was sponsored by Hemispheres Publishing and Caye International Bank. This special forum provided critical, meaningful and useful tools for people to counter the ongoing threats to their personal wealth.

Attendees enjoyed significant one on one time with legal, tax, financial and trust experts and they also had the opportunity to learn about the Mama Vilma Family Home and their Non-Profit Organization. Maricela “ Miss Shelley” Huber visited with the attendees, explaining the goals of the Mama Vilma Family Home committee to build a home for children and families who need a safe haven in a familial environment. Miss Shelley spoke of the various fundraisers that have been held to bring the dream of the home a reality, including fashion shows, sales and benefit concerts that have been adding to the much-needed funds.

Collectively the group donated $2,450BZ towards the urgent need to get this house built on Ambergris Caye, which is important to our community. The island needs a ‘safe place’ that can offer support and services and generous attendees and sponsors of this event were proud to lend their support.

A grateful Miss Shelley told The San Pedro Sun how thankful the committee is for the donation; “This is a very worthy cause, and the funds were much needed. Muchisimas gracias!” She also thanks everyone who has helped in their efforts so far. “As the year draws to an end, we reflect on the generosity of all those who have assisted in our fundraising efforts. Every one of you have helped bring us closer to our goal. It is only in working together that we can make a dream come true. We look forward to working with you all in the coming new year 2013!”
