AmorEcos - Official Volunteer
AmorEcos, from Fundación Puertas Abiertas, is a volunteer group born from the Erika Ender fan club in Panama, almost 20 years ago. Their mission is being a fan club that not only supports the artist music, but also, her philosophy of life,through the practice of social responsibility, as requested by Erika, since its inception.
Over the years, they have actively worked bringing echoes of love, opportunities and helping hands to others by doing positive activities.
Currently, AmorEcos is a family that shares different cultures, races and religions, in which its only movement is to serve the most vulnerable. This is carried out, both through its own initiatives and also the programs of the Foundation, especially TalenPro.
