Receiving a Gift During Difficult Times

The Dominican Republic, just like most countries in the world, has been hit hard by the pandemic of Covid-19. Sharing an island with Haiti, the DR is a country with very low resources and a high mortality rate due to the virus. Our heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones anywhere in the world. Imagine being a child growing up in this rural area of the Domincan Republic. One of the things that make their childhood happy is playing with their friends, running outdoors, using their imagination. Those games have been reduced drastically by this pandemic, as they try to practice "social distancing". 

Our hope is that as the population develops immunity to the virus, our children will continue playing and enjoying their childhood. Some of our fundraising efforts have been stalled. We hope to continue to receive donations via this amazing plattform. Some children are too young to understand what's going on. It is our responsibility as adults to provide the environment for an uninterrupted childhood. Thank you for your generosity.
