Solid Rock International is dedicated to transforming the body, mind, and soul of the poor in the Dominican Republic. We strive to minister to the needy with a holistic approach by offering a wide range of programs. Our goal is to meet the specific needs of people and communities as well as encourage future growth and overall well-being. We believe that by doing this, we are serving God himself. Jesus said,
For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.
The gift of education changes lives and helps bring children out of poverty by providing hope, opportunity, and knowledge for a lifetime. The Christian schools of Solid Rock International offer an excellent education in a Christ-centered environment, providing students with skills to create a future of success. You can change the life of a student today by starting your sponsorship of just $30 a month.
This life-saving ministry works to provide malnourished infants and children with milk and nutritious foods, as well as education for their mothers. Those enrolled in the program receive routine care for typically two years until they graduate and become healthy. Mothers involved also have the opportunity to be involved in a literacy program.
In the Dominican Republic, tap water is not recommended to be used for drinking as it can carry harmful bacteria and parasites. Clean water must be purchased and extra precautions should be taken when cooking and cleaning. Solid Rock International is partnering with First Presbyterian Church of Nashville, Tennessee to install a clean water dispensing station at the CCED school in San Juan to provide the residents of the surrounding barrios clean drinking water at a fair price.
The clinic is located just next to the Solid Rock International Guesthouse in San Juan de la Maguana, Dominican Republic. The clinic is directed by Dr. Osvaldo Canario, who has been working in this ministry since the clinic opened its doors in 1989. The clinic exists to provide Sanjuaneros with general healthcare, including surgery and dental care. Many SRI medical teams work in the clinic to provide specialty surgeries that are not generally provided. The main objective is to provide quality healthcare to all in need, including discounted or even free services to those unable to pay full cost.
In order to encourage and support the spiritual well-being of our Dominican brothers and sisters, Solid Rock International is involved in various ministries focusing on both evangelism and Christian development. While providing these ministries is of high importance, SRI and it’s supporters are always quick to note that they personally learn and receive so much more than they are able to give during their missions experience in the Dominican Republic. It doesn’t matter what country you are from; lives are being changed as we learn from each other and serve Christ together.
Join the Revolution! A new non-profit clinic is being constructed in the DR! The clinic will fulfill our original vision of serving the poorest of the poor while providing opportunities to expand available services to the southwestern region of the Dominican Republic. We believe the new clinic will truly be a revolution for the community. But we cannot do this without the prayers, participation, and sacrificial financial giving from people like you. Please consider how you can be a part of this project as we prepare to watch God work and move to provide for its completion. Your involvement will make a difference!
