This orphanage started in 1993 when a child was rescued in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Over the years, the Orfanato Niños de Cristo has welcomed children from the Dominican Republic and Haiti who have been abandoned and/or abused. These children used to live in dangerous and unsanitary conditions, oftentimes suffering from malnutrition and a lack of access to education, forcing them to beg on the streets in order to survive. Because government funds are extremely limited in the Dominican Republic, the Orfanato is one of the few ways that these children have a better chance at life.

Their mission is to provide 135-orphaned children with a home, health and education through college/vocational school to help them become independent and productive members of their communities. They highly value the role that education plays in the children’s future and strive to maximize their abilities and reach the highest possible educational level.

They need your help, As a sponsor, you will play an integral role in the life of a child, providing guidance and support throughout his/her life as well as giving them the hope and motivation necessary to pursue their dreams.
