Big thanks to Sharon and Bob for taking supplies to Dominican Republic! Way to go! ^_^ [NJT Simcoe]
“We successfully delivered another suitcase of medical supplies to the medical clinic in Barrio Blanco in Cabarete Dominican Republic. This is the third year we have brought medical supplies via Not Just Tourists to the Barrio clinic.
Dr. Wally serves many patients in the poorer areas around Sosua and Cabarete. He and Camille Rose, the volunteer administrator at the Barrio are always eager to receive the donations and very gracious in expressing how important these donations are to their service.
They made a point of telling us that everything gets put to good use including the suitcases which are treated like trophies and often utilized by women leaving violent home situations. So keep up the good work and we are proud to continue to play our little part of such a great and worthwhile project Not Just Tourists.
I have included a few pictures including with Dr. Wally receiving the suitcase and outside the clinic where we played with some of the local children.
We are here for another couple of weeks and then return home….hopefully to an early spring 🙂 !
Sharon and Bob”
