SummaryThis White Cross project seeks provide hundreds of baby layettes, health and school kits at $12/kit to benefit the Haitian communities in San Cristobal, in the Dominican Republic.
DescriptionThe Baptist Association of Life Eternal in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic relies on White Cross contributions to supply kits to hundreds living in extreme poverty in the barrios. A mobile medical clinic brings healing and health into the barrios through vitamins, parasite medication, eye drops and creams. They 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.
