Jarabacoa Residence

Community Service

“Hogar de las Niñas” Shelter Visit

  • Christmas came early for the young girls of the “Hogar de las Niñas de Bonao” shelter during our Winter Break 2018 program! This home shelters 30 young girls who have been abandoned or reside here due to poor living conditions in their home due to impoverishment, physical/mental abuse, or family drug addiction. Our one and only goal on this day is to leave a smile on their faces that they will never forget!

Community Medical Service Walk

  • A medical service walk around the underprivileged community of La Vega, Dominican Republic. Our MedX students will have the opportunity to assist the local medical students, as they walk door-to-door offering free medical services and medications to their people. This not only serves as an extremely educational experience, but will also be a life changing experience for many!
