About the Mission
In just one week, we will partner with a local church to construct a home from start to finish for a family in need. They offer one model home with three rooms and a large front porch.
While the Dominican’s $1 billion tourist industry may give the appearance of a thriving nation, the stark reality is that 40% of Dominicans live in poverty, surviving on less than $1.50 a day, and the unemployment rate stands at a daunting 60%. Families are left in desperation struggling to pay for food, safe drinking water, and adequate housing.
By working alongside the Dominican church, Casas por Cristo volunteers help alleviate a family’s financial burdens and bring the hope of Christ to this remarkable land. With the provision of safe and secure housing, the largest tangible gift anyone will ever receive, you can proclaim the truth of God’s love not only to a family but also to the community at large. If you are interested in more information about this trip, cost, requirements, etc., please contact me (2sue.scott@gmailcom). The deadline to sign up is soon - September 17 - because we want to purchase plane tickets.
