Start a Campaign
Help Orphan Girls in Desperate Need

The Dominican Republic is frequently pummeled by hurricanes and tropical storms that significantly impact the lives of poor people. Over 34% of Dominicans live below the poverty line. In addition, many Haitian children fled here; orphaned after the 2010 earthquake

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, providing orphan children with a safe place to live, clean water to drink, food to eat, a strong education, and a nurturing spiritual environment.
