The Canadian Dominican Ray of Hope is a registered Canadian charity established to provide aid for orphaned children with physical and mental disabilities of the Dominican Republic. Our organization was founded by a group of like-minded individuals with the intention of creating a charity whose purpose is to provide a helping hand to those in dire need. Through genuine acts of charity and love, we form a community that breaks down continental barriers.
As members of this organization, we are each committed to donating our time, resources and services to this cause. This commitment allows our organization to operate proudly with no administrative costs, enabling 100% of the proceeds to go toward our goal of improving the children's lives.
At this time, we are partnered with the Diocese of Puerto Plata that has two homes currently caring for 38 children that were abandoned by their parents who were unable to adequately care for them. The homes have been established to provide the children with food, shelter, medical care, education and love. The children suffer from various physical and mental disabilities ranging from, but not limited to, cerebral palsy, meningitis, severe developmental delays, hearing impairment, visual impairment, polio, Down syndrome and autism.
