You Asked For It!

Several of you have requested photos of children using the newly-remodeled Children International community center in Cienfuegos, Santiago, the Dominican Republic. I located a few shots sent to me by Dayanara, our communications coordinator, and thought I'd share them with you...

Measuring up (above): This child's medical records are getting ready to get an update. We carefully monitor children's height and weight in an effort to detect and prevent malnutrition and make sure development is normal.

Writing your sponsor is fun -- especially when you get to work with a friend!

Dr. Luisiana is going to make sure this young man keeps his winning smile...

One of the greatest benefits Children International provides sponsored children is free medications. Often, if poor families are even able to see a doctor, they do not have the money to fill a prescription. Children International backs up its free basic health care by making sure the children have the medicines they need to get -- and stay -- well.

Thank you so much for those pictures. I enjoy seeing all the smiling faces of the children and the workers. I sponsor three children and one is from the Dominician Republic. I hope to see more photos of all the children that we all sponsor. Thank you again for all you do at Children International.

The center was recently renovated with the support of a "Friends of CI" group. It reopened just a couple of weeks ago.
