Happy Autumn to our Donors and to the People LACA Serves

The President’s Message

Dear LACA Friends, For   me   personally   it   seems   like   this   year   really   flew   by.   They   say   time   flies   when   you’re   having fun,   but   I   think   it   flies   when   you’re   working   hard   too.   I   also   think   it   goes   by   really   slow   when   a crisis   arises   and   uncertainty   weighs   heavily   on   our   minds.   All   you   have   to   do   is   turn   on   your radio   or   television   or   the   news   feed   on   your   smart   phone   and   you   can   certainly   feel   the uncertainty   in   our   world.   The   recent   shooting   in   Las   Vegas   was   a   horrific   reminder   of   evil   that is   prevalent   in   this   world,   but   it   was   an   even   better   reminder   of   the   goodness   that   exists.   All   of the   people   came   together   to   protect   and   help   those   that   were   in   need.   Hundreds   of   people lined   up   for   hours   to   donate   blood.   Strangers   helped   strangers.   They   carried   each   other.   They held   hands.   They   put   their   arms   around   each   other.   On   that   day   it   didn’t   matter   what   side   of politics   you   were   on   or   what   your   beliefs   were.   The   incredible   hearts   and   souls   of   people came   to   the   forefront.   You,   my   friends,   are   like   those   people.   Your   hearts   and   souls   have always   come   forward   to   help   those   in   need   through   LACA.   When   we   have   asked   you   for   help you   have   always   come   forward   for   us   and   we   thank   you   so   much   for   this.   As   you   will   read   in some   of   our   articles,   your   donations   are   changing   lives   for   the   better.   Without   you,   this   would not   be   possible.   On   behalf   of   our   entire   LACA   board   we   want   you   to   know   how   much   we appreciate   it.   Words   cannot   even   express   our   gratitude.   Your   donations   big   or   small   do   make a   huge   difference   for   those   who   are   impoverished.   Remember   that   approximately   95%   of your   donation   goes   directly   to   the   project   or   recipient   in   need.   That   is   incredible.   LACA   needs you   today.   Please   consider   donating   to   any   of   the   various   causes   that   LACA   stands   for.   Your continued   support   is   heroic   to   the   people   that   you   reach.   Your   generous   donations   save   lives, change   lives,   encourage   the   forgotten,   and   strengthen   the   underprivileged.   I   hope   that   you will   take   a   moment   and   help   us   at   LACA   to   reach   the   unreachable   and   spread   hope   to   those who   have   lost   it.    As   I      have   said   before,   what   does   matter   is   that   you   are   willing   to   help   in   any way   you   can!    Remember   that   your   generosity   will   directly   benefit   someone   who   genuinely needs   your   support.    LACA   indeed   is   a   wonderful   foundation   where   you   can   really   make   a difference    for    someone.    Wishes    can    come    true    through    you!        Remember    your    generous donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Sincerely, Alexis  Lawson President, LACA Foundation

The Founder’s Message

LACA’s mission, since the very beginning, has always been focused toward the poorest of the poor.  Initially, we began our efforts in Honduras, the most poverty-stricken country of Latin America.  Later we spread to six other countries:  Haiti, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala, and Panama.  During my term as founder and board president, we financed 35 water systems; funded homes for the poor; educated promising, poor youngsters; and took medical teams to the medically under served.  LACA also supported an empowerment of women program in Panama and funded a daycare center in the poor area of Ciudad Delgado in El Salvador. My vision is that LACA continues to focus its efforts on the poorest and less fortunate of Latin America.  Yours,  Lillian R. Trillo, Founder and President Emerita
