Foundation Las Palmas de Mamre" is an International non-profit foundation overseen by the Costa Rican government.
The mission is also a member of Alianza de Iglesias Evangelicos (Alliance of Evangelical Churches) in Costa Rica.
LAS PALMAS DE MAMRÉ is a Christian mission serving the people living in the remote jungles along the Costa Rican/Nicaraguan border. Its headquarters is located on the Sarapiquí River, two hours by boat from Puerto Viejo in Sarapiquí County, Costa Rica.
Founded in 1990 by Missionary Ana Moshenek, Las Palmas de Mamré is a part of the interdenominational Costa Rican Foundation, which was formed that same year. Baptists, Mennonites, Methodists, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Episcopalians, and people from numerous other denominations are actively involved in various aspects of the ministry. Several churches also provide financial and ministerial support to the Mission.
Las Palmas de Mamré attends to both spiritual and physical needs of the river people who live and travel along the river “roads.” Many of these people are Nicaraguan refugees who are survivors of the terror of recent civil wars in their country. The many small pueblos along these rivers are farming communities where the villagers survive on whatever the land can provide. Here there are no roads during the rainy season, which is most of the year. The principle mode of transportation are horses and boats. Many of the area residents only have small dugout canoes.
