Katharina Margetts' Fundraiser:

Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos - Support Children in the Dominican Republic

THE STORY:

In January 2003 the NPH children's village in the Dominican Republic was born. At the moment, about 230 children live, learn and play in the facilities. Their medical needs are attended to at the home’s own clinic.
Especially outside the tourist areas of the Dominican Republic many people live in extreme poverty: 28% of the population live below the margin of subsistence. The number of children who die before reaching the age of five, is five times as high in the Dominican Republic as in highly developed countries. The average life expectancy is only 68 years. In the children’s village „Casa Santa Ana“ in San Pedro de Macoris, the organization provides housing for children and employees, a clinic, preschool and elementary school, agriculture, vocational workshops and neighborly help to the surrounding community (in form of schooling, medical treatment, construction projects, donations in kind). For these projects, NPH needs support: For example, the cost of one week of snacks for the school children is $90. There are 11 children at the facility who are HIV positive. While the daily medicine is donated by the government, money is needed for bi-annual doctor's check-ups to ensure the kids receive adequate treatment. The cost for one child is about $45. Due to water and food parasites, there is a continuing need to provide the children with anti-parasite medication. One bottle costs $24. Please help with funding some of these children to ensure that their daily basic living and medical needs are taken care of. Thank you!
