Providing more than 135 orphaned children with a home, health and education through college to help them become independent and productive members of their communities.
The orphanage started in 1993 when the founder, Sonia Hane, rescued one abandoned child in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Over the years, the Orfanato Niños de Cristo has welcomed children from the Dominican Republic and Haiti who have been abandoned and/or abused. These children used to live in dangerous and unsanitary conditions, oftentimes suffering from malnutrition and a lack of access to education, forcing them to beg on the streets in order to survive. Because government funds are extremely limited in the Dominican Republic, the Orfanato is one of the few ways that these children have a better chance at life.
Our mission is to provide 160-orphaned children with a home, health and education through college/vocational school to help them become independent and productive members of their communities. We value highly the role that education plays in the children’s future and strive to maximize their abilities and reach the highest possible educational level.
We need your help. Our sponsor a child program is the strongest way that we can transform a child’s life together, by making him/her part of both our and your family. As a sponsor, you will play an integral role in the life of a child, providing guidance and support throughout his/her life as well as giving them the hope and motivation necessary to pursue their dreams.
