Dominican Republic Mission

Pictured above is Amber with students of a village school in the Dominican Republic. Every year Amber takes a team that includes many First Priority students to the DR to feed the families and to provide supplies for schools in many of the poor villages.

While the Dominican Republic’s economy is growing they still are in need of assistance:

  • Close to 50% of the population lives beneath the poverty line
  • There are fewer than 2 doctors per 1000 people
  • New mothers & young children receive little medical care
  • Infant / maternal mortality is high
  • Natural disasters threaten 70% of the population
