Donation of Goods and Food Distribution Program:
Global Surgical Volunteers is deeply committed to helping provide the most important and basic human rights to the needy people in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and other parts of the world, through the distribution of food. We also identify and donate to families in need of basic and household items and/or necessary goods that will allow them to have a sustainable and more consistent way to support their own families.
The community benefits from our services in many ways but most importantly, its basic human rights. Providing nutritional food to the neediest helps them to prevent and fight illness, give them energy, and specially help children to grow and learn more in school. In addition, feeding the needy reduces hunger and it's a public good that we offer which alleviate the burden of the Government.
Construction Projects program:
We build and help rebuild churches, schools, and homes to the neediest in rural/urban areas in the Dom. Rep. With the support and collaboration of missionary groups, churches and University students from the United State and some local charities.
Some of the planning, organizing, and fundraising are conducted in the U.S. while the administration of the programs and construction projects take place in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and other developing countries. There will be regular communication between the U.S. based organization and its board members, volunteers and staff members located abroad.
Building schools and other projects, impact the whole community by increasing the chances and opportunities to reach out and offer an education and different services for those in the community which will lead and prepare them for future jobs, different social and life skills. These services are at no cost to the qualified people we serve.
