Child Nutrition Program
SAVE A LIFE
In the United States, $45 a month is equivalent to a dinner out with a friend, your daily coffee from the gas station, or a family trip to the movies. Pledging just $45 a month to the Child Nutrition Program is a small sacrifice with life-changing results. Through your financial commitment, a malnourished child in the Dominican Republic will be given hope for the future and desperately needed medical care.
HOW FAR CAN $45 A MONTH GO?
A monthly gift of $45 can be stretched very far in the Child Nutrition Program. Your pledge is able to provide the following:
- Milk for one child
- Vitamins for one child
- Medical testing and treatment for one child
- Funding for the Literacy Program
- Support for the program director, doctors, and health promoters
HOW WE SAY “GRACIAS!”
Solid Rock International sees a pledge to the Child Nutrition Program as a special commitment and we would like to thank our donors in a unique way for their support. For those who pledge to this life-changing program, we would like to say “gracias” in the following ways:
- A small gift will be sent to you by mail as a reminder of the lives you have touched and continue to impact.
- Quarterly updates specific to the Child Nutrition Program are often included in the SRI newsletter that will be mailed to you.
A FUTURE FOR THE ILLITERATE
In the areas of El Batey and Gajo de Pedro where the Child Nutrition Program serves, only about 60% of the mothers and grandmothers in the program can read and write. Without these basic skills, it is difficult to find a good job, make wise financial decisions, buy food in the market, and use a cell phone. Family members of children enlisted in the program are encouraged to participate in free classes taught by Pastor Frank Medina, who follows a Bible-based program provided by www.alfalit.org. Pastor Frank teaches in Gajo de Pedro, a rough town where it is common to carry a gun. Through this Christian-based program, he has seen at least four of his students come to know Jesus Christ.
