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 […]

2018 Dominican Republic Day 6 – Immersing Ourselves in the Dominican Culture

Posted · Add Comment

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

Posted · Add Comment

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 […]

2018 Dominican Republic Day 4 – Fun in the Sun part 1

Sunday was our first free day in Puerto Plata. We began by riding in a teleférico, or cable car, to the top of Mount Isabel de Torres to see the Christ the Redeemer statue. It was fun to take pictures with the statue appearing either in our hands, on our heads, or just in the background. There was a beautiful view from the top of the mountain allowing us to see much of the island. The next item on the agenda for the day was shopping! We were warmly welcomed to a local store in Puerto Plata. We loved all the amazing items for sale such as jewelry, wooden sculptures, […]

2018 Dominican Republic Day 3 – Health and Play for the Day

We woke up to another beautiful morning in Puerta Plata. We all shared a delicious breakfast together at a large wooden table under a palapa. We discussed the day’s events with our fearless professor, Mrs. Ruwe. Once our van arrived to transport us to Dove Missions, we jumped in and away we went. During the bus ride to Dove Missions, we mentally prepare for what the day is going to bring, and at the same time, we stare out the windows taking in all the scenes. Once we arrived at Dove Missions, we eagerly went upstairs and set up a room in which we would complete assessments for each of […]
