And here is another project I believe is worthy of support...

As families prepare to send their children to school at the start of a new year, there are many who cannot afford the compulsory uniform and supplies needed (estimated at around US$40 per child). Our Ministry, MESREDEN, from Sabaneta, is working to promote education in El?as Pi?a and member, Pastor Quirico Diaz of Cabarete, has been involved in this since 1993. We request your help to make another delivery this August, hoping it will be the largest to date.

We support one community in Bario Galindo, a very poor area in El?as Pi?a, possibly the poorest province in the Dominican Republic, right on the border with Haiti. With the help of the local people and churches, the clothes and supplies are distributed where there is most need. We can make excellent use of any type of school supplies, notebooks, pens and pencils, back packs and new or used school uniforms and shoes or any other children’s clothing. Nothing will be wasted.

Supplies can be collected or delivered in Sabaneta, Cabarete, Sosua etc. If you prefer to make a cash donation or would like to learn more, please visit our simple website: www.friendsofeliaspina.webs.com
or call 809 907 0349 with any questions or to arrange to donate items.
