Helping Homeless Children
The El Mundo Mejor Orphanage (Better World Orphanage) is located in Higuey, the largest city in the Dominican Republic’s easter region, and about about 45 minutes from Punta Cana. The orphanage cares for some 17 underprivileged boys aged 6 – 16, who have been abandoned or mistreated by their parents. The Better World Orphanage is a beacon of hope for these children, offering them a home where they receive care and an education in a loving environment, safe from harm.
The foundation is lead by a couple from the Dominican Republic, who, after raising their own children and watching them grow up, decided to take care of other children in need. The orphanage occasionally receives help from local people, but they are in constant need of assistance to continue providing for these children.
Caribbean Dream assists this orphanage with monetary donations made from our online excursion sales and these funds go directly to the benefit of the children to help purchase food, clothing, shoes and other essential needs. We also accept monetary and material donations of behalf of the orphanage.
We, at Caribbean Dream, think it’s important to give back to the community, so a portion of every tour you purchase is donated to the orphanage. Forget warm water, dishwashers, microwaves, or televisions. These kids are in constant need of food, shoes, clothing and other essentials that most of us take for granted. If not for the generous donations from our clients, these children would be living on the street and fighting for survival.
