Fundación Lirio del Valle invites you to a small snack on behalf of the children of Villa Caoba this Friday, March 18th from 5-7pm at Toronjas # 7 in Casa de Campo, hosted by our dear Inge Demyttenaere.
The Casa de Campo community has long since been characterized by the solidarity and support provided to those in need. Anna Maria Pla from Casa de Campo decided to continue this practice of bringing smiles and joy to the children and founded the Fundación Lirio del Valle in 2009.
The Fundacion Lirios del Valle aims to educate the children of Villa Caoba, provide them with clothing, food, school supplies and toys. The foundation currently has 120 girls and boys enrolled in its program. A number of these children have been sponsored by kind donors, who pay between USD $29 and USD $43 a month to provide meals, after-school assistance and recreational activities as well as school equipment, instruction and uniform.
“We are happy to say that we have several sponsors that support the program and of course are always willing to welcome more.”
Throughout the years, they have carried out several events to improve the lives of the children of Villa Caoba. A special visit from Santa brought smiles to their faces and an end of the school year party with clowns, just last week they had a medical operative with Dr Hall and his wife (pictured above). Everyone is invited to this event where they will be offering snacks, desserts, cocktails, drinks, and even a raffle of Dominican beauty products made by Halka Industrial, loyal supporter of their cause. All they ask is a small contribution of RD $1,000.00 or US $50.00.
Let’s continue to support this foundation and if you haven’t heard about it, it’s a great opportunity to meet those behind it and join in their mission. If you are unable to attend the event but would still like to contribute, you can do so by checking the different options of donating here.
Together we are able to bring happiness to those who need it the most!
