Dominican Republic is a vibrant, exciting, young country. As a developing nation, there are significant challenges and in the poorest areas, there is a lack of basic resources including access to healthcare. Although there is a social healthcare system in the DR, but many lack insurance, access to healthcare professions and information about their own health.
We are dedicated to closing those gaps and we work with partners and local physicians to provide day to day care and follow up, and we travel from the US with volunteer teams twice a year to provide public, free, walk in clinics for the local population.
Our programs are focused on Constanza, in the Province of La Vega.
Most trips begin with a flight into the Capital, Santo Domingo. The drive to Constanza is very picturesque as we ascend into the mountains that run through the center of the Island of Hispaniola.
