Every year people from all over the world come to visit Punta Cana and adjoining destinations in the Dominican Republic to relax, unwind and enjoy. Thousands of families enjoy their pleasant stay here and take back several golden memories which they cherish for a lifetime. Natives of this little paradise leave no stone unturned to make your holiday a sweet success.
This time, why not do something different.
Why not make a difference and give back to the community which has given us so much!
You can undertake and fulfill this noble initiative in a number of ways. One way which gives you a humble opportunity to not only mix-up with the local community, but also provide food and education to the underprivileged children of this beautiful community, is through a local non-profit organization called “Fundacion Lirio del Valle”.
Established in 2009, this Non-Profit Organization takes care of 120 children who reside in Villa Caoba, an impoverished community of La Romana, Dominican Republic. Currently headed by Anna Maria Pla Pujal, this foundation runs with an active support of volunteers, sponsors and partners from Spain and the Dominican Republic. The foundation conducts educational workshops on Saturdays and regular health check-up. This Non-Profit Organization is steadily working towards making a difference, however small, towards enhancing the quality of life these children are living.
They are always looking for compassionate sponsors and volunteers who are willing to contribute towards this noble cause. The main purpose of the foundation is to sponsor the school tuition for the children of this community. You can too extend a helping hand by making a suitable donation. It could be as simple as donating notebooks, pencils, book, bag or you may also make a difference by sponsoring a child’s education.
While in Punta Cana, you can drive to the village in less than 40 minutes, thanks to the new Coral Highway. And if you are not currently in Punta Cana, but would still like to make a personal contribution then you may get in touch with the foundation directly at www.villacaoba.com.
Remember, no matter how big or small, your contribution can always make a difference. After all, it feels good to know that someone cares.
