CARITAS in the Dominican Republic

About The Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic makes up the eastern two thirds of the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea, with Haiti taking up the west. A distance of roughly 700 miles from Miami, the island is frequently pummeled by hurricanes and tropical storms that can significantly impact the lives of poor people.

Over 34% of Dominicans live below the poverty line and are in desperate need of support. Many Haitian children also fled here after being orphaned after the 2010 earthquake. 

The most vulnerable poor people are of Haitian origin who endure harsh living conditions, meager incomes, and social derision.

Orphaned Children

In the Dominican Republic, CARITAS For Children’s ministry is supported by the Carmelite Sisters of the Teresas of Saint Joseph. This religious congregation specializes in running schools and orphanages across many regions of Latin America.

CARITAS For Children sponsors are humbled by the love and care this congregation gives to orphans who have nothing; providing them with a safe place to live, clean water to drink, food to eat, a strong education, 
and a nurturing spiritual environment.
