For $400US, the Abundant Life Charity can provide the families of the Batay with meals for 2-3 days. For some, these are the only meals they are able to eat in a week. Our goal is to help these families do more than just survive.
Abundant Life Charity
December School Update
It has been almost a month since we have opened the school to support the children of the Dominican. Currently, there are 64 children with very limited paid contributions from the families.
COVID has presented some unique challenges to opening the school and the number of children enrolls exceeds ministry rules so we have hired an additional teacher. There is now a team of 5 teachers to support the education of the children.
It was discovered that Pastor Gabi has been taking a very meagre salary in order put the needs of others ahead of his own. Although Abundant Life Charity is focused on giving 100% of the money donated to the ministry, Gabi is the boots on the ground to allow us to support these children. We are moving forward in faith for the finds to come throughout the school year from those who are supporting to pay for these new expenses.
In our last update, we shared that new security cameras have been installed and we hope that this will end the vandalism that we have experienced.
We want to thank everyone who has supported us this year. It has been an unusual year with some unexpected obstacles but we are grateful for the meaningful ways that people have given back.
As we celebrate a time of year of abundance, community and connection, your support means more than ever. Your donation does so much more than just address a physical need – it shows the Dominican children that they are loved.
The Abundant Life Charity school was paid a visit by the Minister of Education. Just months after opening their doors, they are able to participate as one in only 5 schools to carry out the Community Satisfaction Survey for the school year.
The charity is dedicated to providing for the growing needs of education, spiritual direction, and the relief of poverty for the children of the Dominican Republic.
