This month, starting on the 21st of July, the Clínica de Familia, a center dedicated to providing medical assistance to women and children with HIV, as well as supporting numerous programs for the benefit of the greater La Romana area, is hosting their annual “Camp Hope and Joy”. For over 10 years, the clinic carefully prepares for Camp Hope and Joy, from designing the motto by which the activities are developed to the logo and every little detail, all is taken seriously to get ready for the children. The Clínica de Familia La Romana are able to put on the camp thanks to the contributions and donations of all those who are concerned about the well-being of the children in this region.
The incredible camp gives more than 80 HIV positive children the opportunity to have fun and just be kids in a safe, supportive, and loving environment. They also teach on the importance of campers continuing with their medications as indicated. Kids can participate in activities like arts and crafts, sports, community service, singing, drama, and games, which of course help them strengthen their life-skills, team-spirit, and self-esteem.
The Clínica de Familia La Romana (Family Clinic) is a nongovernmental and nonprofit organization which provides health care services with a family-centered methodology for over 15 years. They work with the most vulnerable members of the population in the community of La Romana and much of the eastern region.
