As our business grows, we at Liquid Systems want to participate in helping our community as much as we can. There are many different charities and good causes in Roatan, almost too many to list. These cover all types of things from clinics and medical, disability and rehabilitation, education-related charities, Rotary Club, veterinary, HIV/AIDS transmission, mission-based projects, youth, sports and many more.
Sol Foundation Roatan
Liquid Systems is proud to be a supporter of SOL Charity’s “Happy Tummies Active Minds” projects. Based in Sandy Bay, this is a youth charity with many different areas. This particular program focuses on providing meals for local school children (who might otherwise be going to school hungry) and teaching young people cooking skills and the importance of healthy, balanced diets.
Workers, in our experience, who are properly fed are much happier and more productive than those who are not. The younger these habits are started, the better – which is where SOL Foundation comes in – any of whom could become an addition to our future expanded workforce.

They are also part of the Amazon Smile program, where a % of your purchase can be donated to the charity of your choice.
At Liquid Systems we are always improving our kitchen facilities, with access to cold water at all times and safe storage for food. We are working on expanding our home compost project to work, and reducing our garbage output by encouraging more sustainable food/eating practices, and expanding storage areas for employee plates, containers and cutlery.
We also cultivate our own okra, yucca, sugar cane, tomatoes, the beginnings of banana, plantain and papaya…working on more! All organically fertilised with compost-enriched soil. Check out our back yard!
At Liquid Systems we are committed to serving our community and beyond as best we can. Although we work for all size businesses and individual customers, we also assist as much as we can with community projects.
In Roatan these projects include: community well-water systems, charity projects and other often underfunded public services.
We have consulted with them in the past, and in the future we will be helping with a community well system serving Colonia Policarpo-Galindo in Sandy Bay (after they were forced to waste money on poor service with another business). This well supplies water to thousands of homes, and will need maintenance and further improvements in future.
In the past, we have consulted with and carried out repairs for various community well projects in West End, Gibson Bight, Sandy Bay and Coxen Hole, Calabash Bight, Punta Blanca and various others – keeping costs as low as possible for the customer. We offer free advice, low-cost repairs and new equipment suggestions where necessary.
Our most recent community project came together with the help of Keith Miller of Blue Wave Radio, Joe Peterkin and the Roatan Rotary Club, and the Cuerpo de Bomberos de Roatan (local fire dept.) They had available some very important and useful hydraulic tools: Jaws of Life, spreaders and rams. Liquid Systems was told that the equipment had not been functioning for some time.
We were able to get things back in service within less than 2 weeks – essential equipment for cutting someone out of a car wreck (and there is only one such set up covering the whole island of Roatan).
Once again, thanks to Blue Wave Radio, the Rotary Club of Roatan and the Cuerpo de Bomberos de Roatan, we are here to make Roatan a better and safer place!
