About Us

Like many great ideas, El Mundo para Puerto Morelos, was created one evening in a bar. In the aftermath of devastating hurricanes Wilma and Emily in October, 2005, a group of local expatriates were made aware of a disturbing problem in one of the primary schools. With an enrollment of 700 and a water system damaged by the storms, the students and faculty were only able to flush the toilet twice a day, and had no water for hand washing. The locals responded by reaching into their pockets asking how much it would cost. Thus began the organization and establishment of El Mundo para Puerto Morelos, SC, (The World for Puerto Morelos), and its first project of successfully replacing the school's entire water system.

From this random beginning, EMPPM has evolved into a thriving charitable organization, completing enumerable projects aimed at making life better for all the inhabitants of Puerto Morelos. We are certified as non-profit in Mexico and in the United States (Friends of El Mundo Para Puerto Morelos), as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Tax ID# 80-0515521. Our focus has been on enriching the lives of everyone in the community through maintenance and improvement in the areas of health, education, and welfare.

With the help of tourists, friends, expats, and local residents we have been able to tackle major issues in our community, aiding the emergency responders, medical clinics, and educational facilities and families with special programs, supplies, and equipment. We look forward to continuing this assistance through contributions and donations from our supporters, both worldwide and local.
