Holy Child volunteers serve at the mission site of the Sisters of the Holy Child in the Dominican Republic, which encompasses both a school and medical clinic. They provide quality education and service by teaching in the school for one or two years.
One of our current volunteers, Gabby, has written about life in the batey. She writes:
The people here live quite simply and are some of the most joy-filled people I’ve met. They are fighters. They are persistent. They do not give up. They have taught me how to be stronger and continue to inspire me to be a better person. As I embark on my last 6 months here, I continue to ask for your prayers. Not for myself, but for these people, my people, who show me every day that Jesus is alive and works in us.
