One of Project Restauración’s most popular (and fun!) activities with children are our health fairs. Participants from the community must collect a stamp from each table to be entered for prize raffles. $150 funds 1 health fair, and can be adopted individually.
The FIMRC site in the Dominican Republic is heavily oriented toward health education and community
outreach. One of our most popular (and most fun!) activities with children is our health fairs. We set up
in a large space in a selected community and set up several tables with health-related activities;
participants from the community must collect a stamp from each table to be entered into a raffle for
healthy prizes. This is a great resource for the communities and is always extremely popular with
participants and volunteers. We plan to hold two health fairs per year.
