The municipality of Caleta, a poor yet growing community located south of La Romana, has donated land to our foundation, with the vision to build a new community health center, “Centro de Salud.” This land donation arose out of recognition that Light A Candle Foundation (LAC) provides life-changing health services for their people and works to truly bring light to the community.
For years we have dreamed of having a health center to serve the poor with quality health care and health promotion. Now we have been gifted a donation of land in Caleta (see map). This beautiful opportunity for construction of a health center is a dream come true and we invite you to join us in this tremendous opportunity!
In these photos you can see the land and the beginning of the wall that will some day surround the health center. Together we will build block by block, wall by wall, step by step until we can open the doors to people of the area.
There is much to do and your help will be very meaningful in this effort.
