SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $9,800 per year to purchase and provide food and school supplies for the ministries of the Church in Action in the Dominican Republic.
DescriptionGetting a school education in the Dominican Republic is very difficult for those who are poor.This is especially true for Haitians living in the impoverished batey areas that surround the sugarcane fields. The Church in Action in Santo Domingo has tutoring programs to help these children stay in or return to school, and also supports their families by providing healthy food and offering preventive health care and treatment for those with hypertension and high blood sugar. Through White Cross, the church cares for more than 500 families! It is anticipated that this project will help children complete their school educations, give mothers basic supplies for their newborns and improve the quality of medical care for dozens of children in the bateys of the Dominican Republic.
