2018 Dominican Republic Day 7 – When Is “Free Care” Really Free?

Posted · Add Comment

When we think of the word “free,” we associate no obligation to the term. However, in the Dominican Republic, the people who use the public hospital at no charge must come prepared. Linens, towels, supplies for care, food, and clothing are the responsibility of the patient. Feeding and bathing are the responsibility of the patient’s family. For most adults, oxygen is in very short supply. Only the babies and children get special consideration. A free cup of soup for each patient was being distributed during our visit, which was an improvement over previous years. Materials for making a cast and IV meds must be provided by the patient. We donated […]

As on previous days, our group started the morning at Dove Missions by eating breakfast together under the palapa. We conducted physical assessments on the younger boys at the center and interviewed them on their diet history. We socialized with the kids and played with them during our free time. Of course, the boys were rowdy; but they were full of joy and grateful to have us there with them. For lunch, we traveled through Puerto Plata to eat a traditional Dominican buffet. After we ate lunch, we were taken to a mercado (market) in Puerto Plata where they sell a variety of produce and goods. Eggplant, peppers, chayote, plantains, […]

2018 Dominican Republic Day 5 – Fun in the Sun part 2

On our second free day here in Puerto Plata on Monday, we began by traveling to Sosúa, a small beach town famous for its breathtaking shoreline. The water was such a crisp blue, which is different from our North Carolina beaches. Even though the water was rough with waves crashing violently against the rocks in the distance and though the tide was extremely high, we still enjoyed the beautiful ocean for the morning. We shopped at the many small unique shops all along the beach. This is where we really put our bartering skills to the test to see what deals we could get. This is a shopping experience unlike […]
