Day 4

Day 4 begins early Monday morning for the Crown Council Humanitarian Team. They drove 90 minutes to the small village of Guerrero east of San Pedro. Most of the people who live in Guerrero are Haitian, and have no official status in the Dominican Republic and therefore no jobs, little food, no education, and certainly no health or dental care. Our partners at Esperanza and the Bank of Hope are providing small micro finance loans that have changed lives among these people.
