Your generosity gives children a smile, support our work!

Efforts have been undertaken recently to improve both the quality of and access to healthcare. The infant mortality rate has fallen considerably, plus there has been an improvement in hospital care and resources. However, not all Dominican children have been able to benefit from these improvements. For example, owing to cost and insufficient coverage, children who come from poor families still have only limited access to healthcare facilities and the services those establishments provide.

Your gift, or monthly sponsorship, helps children in our communities by providing Medical checkups, Health and Hygiene training and a visit to the dentist.

 

Key Challenges

27% of the population still doesn’t have safe sanitation services | 28% of children under 5 suffer from anemia | Around 40% of Dominicans live in poverty
