Beginning June 27, the Wallingford, Conn. based DR Mission Team will be sending 119 volunteers to serve the poor in the bateyes and barrios surrounding La Romana. While there, the group will engage in a variety of projects to help those in need including construction projects at the Good Samaritan Hospital and the Joe Hartman School, building five new homes in Batey 50, providing food to the hungry in nine different bateyes, running seven desperately-needed medical clinics for people without any access to healthcare, establishing a sustainable food project in Batey 50, sharing the Gospel and supporting pastors and deacons of the church, installing life-saving biosand water filters, and working with children and teachers to enhance educational programs.
