Respond to Christ Ministries serves on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. This area of the D.R., between the towns of Puerto Plata and Cabarete, is a Caribbean travel destination for many people throughout Europe and North America. But look beyond the resort compounds and beaches and you will see a large numbers of disadvantaged communities (of both Dominican and Haitian backgrounds).
The Dominican Republic is located in the Caribbean on the the island of Hispanola, which it shares with the nation of Haiti. The native language is Spanish. The Dominican Republic and Haiti have shared, at times, a very harsh and jaded history. They both are considered “third world nations” compared to the developing nations of the world, but as an island they have had a fair share of internal problems.
We are hoping to expand down the road to other areas around the D.R. and maybe even in Haiti.
