Day 2 in the Dominican Republic. I realized today that it would be impossible to share every touching moment, every precious child, every tear shed. I can't share every story, but I can share this one--the story of Arita and her family, of her two beautiful children and her mother and grandmother, and how, with the help of Compassion, these four generations are learning to finally break the cycle of poverty once and for all.
I think sometimes we neglect to act because we see that there is so much need that whatever little we have to give could never be enough. But I have seen firsthand what just a few dollars can do here, and I promise that for families like this one, it is enough!
I can't tell every story, but I can tell this one: http://bit.ly/1zMCwwh
