“Last fall, I had the unforgettable experience of joining Chiro One Wellness Centers’ humanitarian efforts in the Dominican Republic where they teamed together with ChiroMission to provide free chiropractic care to villagers and funds to build an orphanage for abandoned children. It was my pleasure to take this photo of Haitian kids and I’m excited to be returning to the DR next week with our team of Chiro One Doctors and volunteers.” – April Neill, Director of Public Relations Chiro One Wellness Centers
Chiro One Wellness Centers’ Doctors and volunteers are traveling next week to the Dominican Republic to provide free Chiropractic care to villagers and funds to continue building an orphanage for abandoned children.
Doing its part to reach out to and support the less fortunate in the Dominican Republic, Chiros Care is teaming together with ChiroMission for their 2012 Mission Trip in a humanitarian effort to provide free chiropractic care to villagers and funds to help build an orphanage for abandoned children.
Led by Chiro One Wellness Centers’ Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) and volunteers, Chiros Care is traveling to the Dominican Republic and Haitian Villages where they will join the ChiroMission effort to serve over 30,000 impoverished people in need. ChiroMissions’ September 2012 Mission Trip will run from September 26th through September 30th.
Donations are being collected by participants to help fund the building of the Casa Tesoro de Dios- Treasure House of God Orphanage, also known as “the House that Chiropractic Built.” “If you give a little, and I give a little, together we can make a difference,” states Pastor Joel Pena, Servant Leader for the Casa Tesoro de Dios Orphanage.
“I invite you to be a part of changing the world.” The Casa Tesoro de Dios Orphanage is currently under construction and a temporary structure houses abandoned children. A $3,500 donation was presented last year during the mission trip to Pastor Joel and Sor Tedora Quezada, affectionately referred to as the “Mother Teresa” of the DR, at the Casa De Oracion which was used as the headquarters for the ChiroMission trip. More funds are needed to complete the concrete building that will house up to 100 children.
Chiro One Wellness Centers’ fundraising efforts to help build the orphanage will continue through the end of the year. “If what you do is in service of humanity, you will always be on purpose in life,” states Dr. George Walker, Co-Director of Clinical Operations – Chiro One Metro.
