The Fundación Lirio del Valle is a charity project which was started seven years ago and has worked hard to improve the lives of many poor children in La Romana. The foundation was founded by Anna Maria Pla and Rosario Volquez, who, with a mixed group of Dominican and Spanish volunteers, began working to help the children from Villa Caoba, one of La Romana’s poorest areas.
A number of these children have been sponsored by kind donors, who pay a monthly fee to provide meals, after-school help and recreational activities as well as school equipment, schooling and a school uniform. All sponsors are welcome to visit and form a bond with their sponsored child. MANY of the children are not yet sponsored – if you would like to sponsor a child or just make a donation please contact Anna Maria Pla. This Christmas season they would like to share the following letter with the community in hopes of motivating more people to help them in their mission.
