Addressing Poverty In Paradise
October 2019  Vol 4, Issue 3 Newsletter


As we complete preparations for another season of humanitarian projects in the Eastern Caribbean islands, we are very excited for the opportunities this season brings!

Macario Advantage is dedicated to assisting, uplifting and improving local organizations that, in turn, assist islanders in need by completing one project at a time. As we begin our fifth year of service, we are grateful for our donors and volunteers who continue to make it possible to start and complete projects that give hope to those in need.

As mentioned in a previous newsletter, we have visited several facilities and learned of others while meeting with many local residents. By doing so, the Board of Directors are able to review and assess each organization’s needs and determine which projects to undertake. This season, the following organizations will be assisted:

In Dominica:
  • Build a garden at a homeless shelter to provide a constant food supply, repair faulty plumbing, and build a retaining wall to prevent flooding to building during storms
  • Paint the interior and exterior of a community center that serves indigenous tribal members    
In St. Lucia:
  • Paint rooms at a boys' shelter
  • Paint rooms at a homeless shelter
  • Refresh a commons area at an old elementary school in one of the poorer neighborhoods in the capital city of Castries
In St. Thomas:
  • Will take on a small project with a local organization that serves the poor (TBD)


We’ve been blessed to be able to use our time and resources to make a difference in the lives of many islanders. Our volunteers come from all over the world to support and help with the humanitarian projects. We are beyond excited to work alongside them!  As we grow and expand, we welcome you to volunteer some of your time, skills, and resources in Macario Advantage’s mission. Check out volunteer opportunities here.


Because of gifts from partners like you, Macario Advantage can continue to support facilities that are in desperate need of personalized attention with hands-on experience. Please consider making a one-time or monthly donation that will be used to support a feeding program or help to maintain a facility that serves the poor. Make your gift online today, and help us turn innovative ideas into action to improve the lives of the poor islanders in the Eastern Caribbean.

Thank you for your past and future generosity!
