DOMINICAN REPUBLIC MEDICAL PARTNERSHIP
Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in the bateyes and barrios of the Dominican Republic and to promote sustainable health care efforts through partnerships.
Village Church supports this because access to quality healthcare is not limited to our nation's borders but only by our own sense of justice and compassion. The DRMP's mission is shaped by the gospel that bids us to love our neighbors, both near and far, as we love ourselves.
It all started in the mid-90’s with a compassionate nurse who visited the Dominican Republic and saw a way to make a difference in the lives of thousands.
She convinced a retired doctor from the Village Presbyterian Church that teams of volunteers could take life saving medical care and education to some of the poorest people in the western hemisphere and all involved would be richer for it.
Today that program has taken us places few imagined. We continue to sponsor medical and surgical teams who provide quality health care to Haitian cane cutters. We also launched ambitious community health programs, providing education training and support for people who live in these small villages to help care for their neighbors.
These programs are designed to address everything from childhood malnutrition to family planning to disease prevention.
How do we do it? With God’s help and support from people like you.
