GoalThe goal of this project is to provide hundreds of baby layettes, health and school kits to benefit the Haitian and Dominican communities in the Dominican Republic.
SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $11,765 annual (an average of $12 per kit).
DescriptionOur partners in mission rely on White Cross contributions to supply kits to hundreds living in extreme poverty in the barrios. Volunteers with medical clinics bring healing and health into the barrios through vitamins, parasite medication, eye drops and creams and teach disease prevention while sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pre-maternal gift baskets provide baby clothing, diapers, vitamins and a blanket to new mothers. School kits give the children the chance at an education that can break the cycle of poverty through simple things like a pencil, eraser and notebooks. School uniforms are also made possible through White Cross contributions. It is anticipated that this project will help hundreds of people who struggle each day to provide for their basic needs.
Suggested GiftsA gift of $10 will provide: 1 Health kit with vitamins, anti-parasite med, linens, sheets and Band-Aids, or 1 Baby layette with diapers, soap, towel and a baby bottle, or 1 Set of school supplies like a backpack with a notebook, pencil and uniform
Prayer RequestsPlease pray for the Haitian and Dominican families living in extreme poverty to keep their hope that God will help them flourish. Please pray for those tackling spiritual poverty in these communities by bringing the Gospel message as well as arts and craft classes and school supplies. Please pray that those receiving these kits will know that others care for them.
