In Rio Salao there is a family of eight that live in a little one room house next to a river. Their living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom - all one room! Their floor - dirt! No family should have to live this way. For this reason and many others, we have been inspired to extend a hand of generosity and love to the Dominican Republic.
The 33 cities that make up the island of the Dominican Republic is a virgin land to plant, invest, and nurture. It is a poor country and in great need of a helping hand in areas such as: education, infrastructure, lifestyle condition, and more. Over one third of the population live on less than $1.25 a day; and over 20% of the country live in extreme poverty. Our mission is to build schools and hospitals where they are needed across the country.
Why build a school?
In the Dominican Republic, the population has tripled and the volume of students is more than schools can accommodate. Currently, students are forced to go to school in two large groups either in the morning or the evening. They are in great need of a school.
Why build a hospital?
We want to extend humanitarian aid to the Dominican Republic to ensure proper health care and provide better medical resources for children and adults. The hospital will also serve as a place of refuge for those with alcohol and drug addictions, those suffering from abusive relationships and those that are homeless and malnourished.
