While serving in the DR, different teams will be working each day to help the very poor, including groups providing medical clinics, construction at the Joe Hartman School (kitchen project), educational programs, construction in a batey (build houses, etc.), evangelism, food distribution, and much more. This past year in 2016, we had 147 volunteers serving over 16 days. During that time, the DR Mission Team 2016 celebrated the completion of the "Fifty for 50" project in Batey 50 on July 9, where all shacks have been replaced with new homes, a sustainable garden has been developed, a new school is built and running, a new church was constructed, and biosand water filters have been installed in all homes.
