Deliver a sustainable humanitarian and solidarity model empowering the Haitian and Dominican peoples by providing quality healthcare through volunteerism and aid.
To make FUNTOSALUD Intl. an instrument of educational empowerment, spiritual transformation, and community solidarity. Also, to provide free primary medical care, humanitarian aid, holistic medicines, counseling, healing arts and empowering street theater training to disenfranchised adults and children living in border towns and Bateyes(Inhumane living settlements for sugarcane workers).
Why the DR/Haiti border?
The Haitian-Dominican border region, an impoverished area most often neglected and overlooked, serves as a site for daily trade activities, which generate substantial revenues that ironically, never reach the people who inhabit the nearby towns. These borderline villages are hubs for individuals from both sides of the island, who come to search for employment to improve their inhumane life conditions. Theses communities are racked by hunger, maternal and neonatal mortality, as well as, chronic bacterial and parasitic diseases; most of which can be prevented by regular healthcare, immunizations, prevention & educational services. Unfortunately, these towns lack sufficient resources to provide its residents with this necessary primary medical attention and other basic needs.
