What We Do
Through various fundraising events throughout the year selling Latin American food and featuring Latin American musical performances, we collect goods and raise funds to send to Latin America.
Since our inception in 2001, the Caravan of Hope has made a measurable impact on many communities in Latin America. Below you can find out how much we have impacted the community.

“As long as poverty, injustice and inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest.”
The Town of San Lorenzo
Following the El Salvador earthquakes in 2001, $70,000 was raised to purchase four hectares of land where 87 homes were built for displaced families. The town was named after the San Lorenzo Parish to commemorate the generosity of the people of Toronto. In August of 2018, San Lorenzo celebrated its 15th anniversary with cake and fireworks.
