In late February, nine representatives from six of our twenty-four denominations had the privilege of visiting the work of Compassion in the Dominican Republic. Having accompanied the team, I know that this visit really inspired hope.
In the midst of the bustle of Santo Domingo it was wonderful to see how much Compassion is accomplishing for disadvantaged children through the local churches that deliver its programmes. We saw projects helping young mothers through their pregnancies and supporting them through their early experiences of parenting. We also saw excellent initiatives that encourage and equip deprived children from some of the Dominican Republic’s poorest areas. This visit definitely inspired us with hope and we have produced a video that we trust will inspire you too.
