How to help

We invite you to join us as we reach out from the comforts of our homes to care for vulnerable children and elderly in the Dominican Republic.  We are an all-volunteer partnership, so you can be assured that all of your donations go directly to help in our programs in the Dominican Republic. Here are some ways to contribute…

Education

Learning is such an important component to Love Unconditional.  With schooling you are investing in a child’s future.  Donate and know that you are helping a child learn to read and write, but you are also opening a door of opportunity and hope.  Funds designated for education will be applied to schooling, uniforms, books and school supplies.

Nutrition & Wellness

Our Lunch Plate Program provides nutritious meals to those in need. We use simple ingredients: rice, beans, oil, meat, and vegetables—simple things that can make a major difference!  Currently the Lunch Plate Program feeds over 450 children in three locations each week day. Children receive a delicious, nutritious hot meal as well as pure drinking water. In addition to children, some pregnant women and some vulnerable elderly and disabled adults receive meals through this program.

Sponsor a Child

The children on our waiting list for this program are orphans, who have lost one or both parents to death or abandonment, or are at-risk because their family of origin is in crisis.  If you want to make it personal, we can match you with a child. Your donation will help with schooling, advocacy, and so much more. Visit our Sponsor a child page to see children who are currently waiting for a sponsor.

As Needed Most Giving

We will apply undesignated gifts to the most critical needs at this time.  Our biggest need typically on a monthly basis is for funds for Lunch Plate, and quarterly it is for School Tuition.  If you would like to discuss specific needs at this time, we are more than willing to share details with you.
