GoalThe goal of this project is to provide monthly groceries and medications for 350 Haitian children, men and women.
SummaryThis project seeks to raise $10,588 in order to reduce malnutrition and improve the literacy rate of Haitians living in the bateyes of the Dominican Republic.
DescriptionHaitians living in the bateyes around the sugarcane fields in the Dominican Republic cannot afford to give their children the required supplies, shoes or uniforms to attend school. Their children are excited and want an education. The Church in Action in Santo Domingo has tutoring programs to help these children stay in or return to school, supports their families by providing healthy food and offering preventive health care and treatment. Through White Cross, the church cares for more than 300 families! The project total cost is $10,588 per year. Funds will provide food, hygiene products, school supplies, medications for families, children and the elderly.
Suggested Gifts$1,000 will buy deworming medicine and vitamins for the communities for one year. $3,000 will provide groceries and hygiene supplies for the communities. $5,000 will provide school supplies, shoes and uniforms for 20 children for one year.
Prayer RequestsPray that no parent will have to decide which of their children won’t get an education.
