Sierra's Dominican Republic Mission Trip
Organized by: Sierra Lopez
With Deepest Gratitude
March 17, 2016
EVENT DATE May 08, 2016
This is going to be my first time leaving the country, and my first mission trip. This trip means so much to me because for a long time I have felt this call to do something for someone else, and while I try to help people out around me, it wasn't satisfying. With this trip, I already feel like I am making a difference, as we are going to be going to a small village called Villa de Dios. There, we will work alongside Dominican construction workers who, like us, are volunteering their time to help build a water purification system. There is already a natural well where we will be building the system, but as you can imagine, the water is dirty, and many are becoming ill from bathing and using this water. As a team, we need to raise $40000, but are in charge of raising $1800+airfare each. With your help, I think we can exceed our goal, and get these people the resources they desperately need.
