The Bacaanda Foundation
If you're traveling to Huatulco, please consider bringing some of the items on our wish list:
Digital cameras with their software for our dentists to use in documenting their work.
School supplies, such as pens, pencils, notebooks, binders and art materials
Books in Spanish All reading levels, but particularly upper elementary and middle school levels.
Educational games Games involving strategy, memory, math or language skills such as Guess Who?, chess, checkers, Memory, Quarto or Apples to Apples (Spanish edition). For use by children waiting for dental treatments.
Toothbrushes and toothpaste
Bathing suits, new or gently used, all sizes Despite living less than 30 miles from the shore, many of the children we work with have never been in the ocean and must swim in their clothes when they visit.
Durable flip-flops/sandals For the children who come to us with no shoes.
Basketballs The one sports facility some towns have is a basketball court. Unfortunately, it's not much good without basketballs!
Baseball gloves, balls and bats for the formation of a new baseball team; a uniform drive will come later.
Soccer uniforms/supplies, new or gently used
Full teams worth of jerseys We've accomplished this in the past by collecting from town soccer programs. Run a drive among your friends and neighbors!
Black soccer shorts, all sizes
Cleats Right now we're lowest on sizes 5-8 but all sizes are welcome.
Shin guards, all sizes
Laptop computers Contact us to determine compatibility.
Monetary donations to help defray the cost of a new dental facility in Santiago Xanica.
