Some of the social work that we've been doing are:
* Visiting the inmates at the "Fortaleza" the main correctional center in La vega; we bring them food, we play sports with them, plays, lectures and preaching about Jesus.
* Visits to the adolescent correctional center: we bring them food, we play sports with them, plays, lectures and preaching about Jesus.
*Visits to the Nursing Home: we bring them food, plays, lectures and preaching about Jesus.
*Visits to Hogar Crea: Hogar Crea is a Rehab Center that lacks of supplies and founds to do their job properly so that's why we bring them food, we play sports with them, plays, lectures and preaching about Jesus.
We also do some activities to help improve the young boys and girls such as lectures on venereal diseases, pregnancy as a teen, summer camps and so on.
The range of help on the people we help is but not limited from 13 to 35 years old. We do not discriminate their sexual or religion orientation, skin color or social traits.
