A Healthy Community is a Stronger Community

The Bienvenido Project Funfonavi and the Glasswing International Foundation delivered 20  water filters to a large number of families in the community of Bienvenido; they were also given a personal hygiene and filter maintenance talk.

In the month of July, we had a lot of rain in the Dominican Republic, due to Tropical Storm Elsa.

Meals served: 3,093, an average of 155 meals per day.

In August, together with Glasswing International, we taught 60 mothers how to make detergents (liquid soap for washing and washing, sanitizing, and softener for clothes).

Each woman received a kit with the products made and raw materials for the production of these products.

Meals served 4,285, an average of 205 per day.

Showing Love And Care For The Community

We wanted to thank the distinguished mothers of the project. Therefore, on Mother's Day, they were summoned, and we gave them a personalized mug from the institution, with their name and the insignia of BRAVE WOMAN.

We had the great opportunity to celebrate World Hygiene Day on May 5th, together with Fundación SANOFI, Enterogermina, and Fundación Glasswing International RD. The children were convened in compliance with the protocol of the Ministry of Public Health.

The children received Personal Hygiene Kits, which contained: Hand Gel, Bath Soap, Books, Watercolors and pencils for coloring, Pencils, Erasers, and Scissors. In the month of May, we served 4,120 meals, with an average of 206 dishes per day. In June, we served 4,065 meals with an average of 206 plates per day. For a total of 8,185 meals served in the months of May-June.

Because of you, we are doing more for the community.

First, we want to thank all of our supporters who are helping us reach new milestones as an organization. Your love allows us to move forward and face new challenges to support the community in Bienvenido.

We know that parents must support their children's education efforts if we want to see a positive and lasting change.

Do you know why many parents in Bienvenido can't support the educational journey of their child? Some of them have never been to school. They don't know how to read or write.

We wanted to change that.

We saw the need for literacy in the community, and we started to plan a way to create an adult literacy program for Bienvenido. With the support of the Frespon Foundation, our staff was trained to understand the foundation of a successful literacy program.

Today, we can say we have more than 8 adults ready to increase their educational/technical skills and would now be able to support and encourage their children to persevere in their studies.

Do you see how much can be done when different organizations unite on an excellent purpose? Well, the story is not over yet!

For World Hygiene Day, we got the chance to celebrate with Glasswing International RD Foundation. We want our children to know that we can have a better future if we take care of ourselves. After following all health protocols, we called the children from our community to provide them with cleaning and personal hygiene kits. Each kit contained: Shampoo, Mouthwash, Soaps, and Conditioner.

We delivered approximately 200 kits and educated our community about the benefits of practising self-care through hygiene.

We are doing more, and we are doing it better for the sake of the Bienvenido Community. Thank you for joining this mission to save children from poverty.
