Year 1 at a Glance

OFAPR launched on March 2021, since then we have continued our mission of focusing on social and environmental issues in our community. This year, we have worked with love4satos in which volunteers completed essential tasks to send dogs and kittens to the United States to find their forever home, helped the environment through planting trees and cleaning up the beach, sent letters and cookies to children in orphanages, and much more! We thank everyone for their commitment and support!
