You should know that on the week of November 29th to December 6th 2021, I will be travelling to the Dominican Republic, with a delegation of 20 fellow ministers, members of The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization.
We graciously accepted the invitation to collaborate in this humanitarian effort. This invitation was extended by Mr. Victor Dumé, the Bavaro’s International Airport Director of Community Affairs, and Mrs. Elida Almonte, President of the Dominican Chamber of Commerce U.S.A. and the official spokesperson for the «Comité de Altagracianos USA Pro Bavaro’s Airport”.
Joining this effort are the pastors and ministers from the underserved provinces of Higüey and La Ceiba in Bavaro. The delegation of ministers that, with the help and blessing of our God, will be accompanying me from New York City will be staying at the Hotel Ancora in Punta Cana.
The Ministers and Pastors of Higuey and La Ceiba in Bavaro, have coordinated a health fair for two (2) days with the distinguished and respected Dr. Cruz Jiminian, and a baseball Clinic for 300 Children. Also on the agenda are different visits and interviews with various leaders and officials of the Dominican Republic.
a) The Health Fair will be held at the Public School of La Ceiba in Bavaro and will be headed by the Dr. Cruz Jiminian Foundation, The Oviedo Optical Foundation and the Ramon Álvarez Foundation.
b) The Baseball Clinic for the 300 children will be held in the auditorium of the area of “La Otra Banda” in Higüey and will be led by the distinguished athletes Rafael Landestoy, Director of the New York Mets in the Dominican Republic, Mr. Mario Melvin Soto and Mr. Leo Hernández.
This trip is of paramount importance to The New York Hispanic Ministers of New York where they hope to establish a close, friendly, and ministerial relationship with the Pastors and Ministers of the area and thus continue planning and conducting humanitarian efforts and social benevolent events in the future.
I am Councilman Rev. Ruben Diaz, and this is What You Should Know.
