Program 3

Clean Water Program

In the Dominican Republic, tap water is not recommended to be used fro 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, TN 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.

Program 4

Christian Clinic for Integrated Health.

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 1990. 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.

Ministry Programs

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.

REVOLUTION Campaign

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!
