Alexander Estevez from AAV with AYUDA volunteers!

The last few months have been busy for the AYUDA and Aprendiendo A Vivir (AAV) teams. Members of the AYUDA team have been working closely with the AAV young leaders from the new office location (now on the 27 de Febrero) in Santo Domingo.

A young leader from AAV, Alexander Estevez, was selected to join the AYUDA volunteer training program summit in Washington DC held from March 30th to April 1st. Alexander spoke with passion to the new volunteer teams, local partners and guests about the realities of living with diabetes in the Dominican Republic and his hopes for the future given the role of AAV in his country.

Preparations are currently in place for a 10k, 5k and Zumbathon event planned for June 3rd in the Botanical Gardens in Santo Domingo to raise awareness about diabetes and encourage people to exercise (in particular given that 75% of Dominicans do not exercise regularly). The event should also serve to raise funds for the foundation's summer activities. In addition, plans are underway for June’s diabetes education programs with AYUDA planned for June and July 2012, including extended outreach activities across the country.
