ROSE in ACTION
MAKE an IMPACT with US
Through your generous support, ROSE partners with Roatan’s most impactful organizations to provide them with a means to do their humanitarian work. Donations can be snail mailed to ROSE‘s address or easily made electronically, and go towards purchasing & delivering the exact items each partner needs. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
All administrative work is fully covered by volunteers, allowing 100% of your donation to go to its intended purpose.
Now in our second year, we transport and deliver an average of 2 shipments a month that directly and consistently improve the lives of Roatan’s children, families and adults. Some of what is transported:
Powdered Milks Baby Formula & Food School Supplies Sports Uniforms
Cleats/Shin Guards Soccer Balls Utensils & Cookware Condoms
Computers Tablets/iPhones Printer/Scanner/Faxes Medical Exam Gloves Medical Feeding Bags/Tubing Medical Syringes/Needles Medical Prep Kits Medical Equipment
Wheelchairs & Walkers Orthopedic Supports Liquid Nutrition Adult Diapers
Additionally, ROSE regularly delivers maintenance and cooking supplies and spices to the Hospital and local Soup Kitchen, and provides food to the animals, clothing and shoes to the workers.
Health & Family Clinics are in constant need of equipment, medical supplies and educational materials which the clinic staff orders from Amazon. Everything is delivered to ROSE in Houston, and packed to maximum weight and size limit. Additional donated, refurbished and purchased items are also collected and packed for delivery before being flown to Roatan monthly. In addition to the transportation of these much-needed items, donations help with the collection process and with the local purchase of medicine and supplies.
Community Health Programs take clinic care and education into the outlying villages to teach expecting mothers about prenatal care, new mothers about baby care, teens about sex education, diabetic patients about nutrition, women breast cancer awareness, and parents about the necessity for vaccines.
Donations to ROSE help cover the cost to distribute education materials and transportation.
Athletic Programs such as Soccer (fútbol) and basketball are popular on the island and help keep the youth involved in healthy activities, learning teamwork. Teams need soccer cleats, uniforms, #3 and #4 soccer balls, basketballs (deflated balls, please), athletic shoes, and more…
ROSE has partnered with a local organization, Kids Kingdom, that is providing hope through soccer and education to poor kids living in rural areas. This group serves the community with very little help and resources.
Houston’s DREAM (Dynamo/Dash Rewarding Equipment Apparel Mission) youth soccer team has been a valuable sponsor, and in addition to transporting soccer equipment and apparel, ROSE donations pay for field rental, referees, transportation to practice, games, and tournaments.
Schools require students to wear uniforms. Those too poor to purchase them don’t attend. ROSE delivers books and supplies. ROSE donations help pay for uniforms and school supplies.
Soup Kitchen A free bowl of soup is served daily to those unable to provide for themselves. Over 100 men, women, and children depend on this program for their one daily meal. The kitchen also makes and delivers a soup specially made for diabetic patients who are unable to come to the kitchen.
