PADF has worked in Panama since 2021 implementing a two-year project funded by the Department of State’s Bureau for Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) aimed at providing life-saving humanitarian assistance and protection to vulnerable migrants and refugees traveling through the Darien and Chiriquí provinces of Panama. We partner with the Panamanian Red Cross (CRP in Spanish) in the provinces of Darien and Chiriquí.
PADF also maintains relationships with regional bodies located in Panama, which are engaged in the deployment of materials and resources following disasters such as hurricanes affecting the Caribbean. In addition, Panama plays a prominent role in PADF’s STEM Americas strategy that promotes the development of skills that youth need to thrive in the 21st century. PADF expects to continue expanding its presence in Panama to address issues of regional importance such as supporting inclusion of vulnerable people, addressing corruption, and preparing and responding to natural disasters.
