In 2005, when the idea came up about starting a Sponsorship Program in the Dominican Republic, we never thought of all the people, both in Canada and in the Dominican Republic, that the Program would affect. From meagre beginnings, with only 6 children, the Program has expanded to nearly 500 boys and girls sponsored! That number includes 90 young people in University. The Program now also sponsors 19 widows who are very poor.
The Boys’ Orphanage in Jaibon was about to close unless they got a sponsor. The annual Golf Tournament (August 6) provides enough funds to keep the Orphanage open and support the 25 boys living in it.
To celebrate what God has done, we are having a 10 Year Anniversary Celebration Banquet on Saturday, October 3rd. Our two administrators, Roberto and Angelita, are coming to be with us and help us celebrate. We hope you will make plans to attend.
