President's Message
Dear " . $Name .",

Saludos (Greetings)!

I was recently asked…"Brian, what is the secret to Project Mañana’s success?" And, without any thought I was able to respond with, “the secret really isn’t a secret at all. Project Mañana is the result of many people who have decided to invest in people, rather than things. On top of that, we give all the glory to God who has made everything possible.”

Truly believing that "if you build it, they will come," we have dedicated our lives to helping build relationships with impoverished children and their American sponsor. In addition to child sponsorships, what you may not know is that Project Mañana is working to bless the Dominican people through various other projects.

After you've taken time to read this newsletter, I would like to encourage you to learn about all of Project Mañana’s projects.

There are a variety of projects and we hope that you won’t just read/delete this email, but will seriously consider putting the blessings in your life into action. Think about it…as little as $1 per day CAN CHANGE A CHILD’S LIFE!

Please join the movement.
Please open your heart.
Please partner with Project Mañana!

On behalf of 225 (and growing!) Project Mañana children, their families, and community, THANK YOU for "Working Together Today For An Eternal Tomorrow!™"

Please visit Project Mañana's website for more information on how you can partner with Project Mañana; including child sponsorship.

Project Mañana Hosts Medicial Clinic for 650+ People

Project Mañana was honored to host a 16-person medical mission team of doctors, dentists, vision specialists, nurses, and volunteers from Praying Pelican Missions. Over the course of a two-day medical clinic at our nutrition center in Villa Gonzalez, more than 650 patients were seen for a variety of ailments. And, all services were provided at no cost to the patients!

With the average income of $75-$100 per month for a family of 6-8 people, medical services are often unavailable to the families of Villa Gonzalez. In addition, the closest clinic is a 30 minutes drive from the community – and most people don’t have transportation.

Lines started forming at 6:00am for an 8:00am start. Upon entering the clinic, patients passed through a triage station where they were assessed and given an anti-parasite chewable tablet. In addition, each patient received a gift bag which included soap, shampoo, toothbrush, tooth paste, and a small sowing kit. Based on their need, the patients were directed to three stations: General Medicine, Vision, or Dentistry. In many cases, patients passed through all three stations. All stations were staffed with volunteer translators who spoke Spanish and Creole.

After passing through the various stations, patients were given a prescription and sent to a mobile pharmacy where they received a variety of medicine at no cost.

The General Medicine station was staffed by two doctors who helped treat children and adults with a variety of ailments from dehydration to arthritis.

The Vision station had a team of six people who preformed eye exams. After their exam, each patient received a pair of prescription glasses tailored to their needs. And, the children received an extra-special gift of sunglasses.

The Dentistry station offered a dental exam and decayed tooth extractions. In addition, patients received information and education on proper dental care.

Project Mañana’s team has participated various medical clinics over the years, and we can truthfully say that this medical clinic was one of the most organized, helpful, and impactful that we have ever seen.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone (Americans and Dominicans) who volunteered to make this clinic possible. And, Project Mañana would like to offer a special ‘thank you’ to Holly Mirau (the team’s leader) and William Gomez (pastor who introduced Holly to Brian Berman of Project Mañana.)

Project Mañana Partners With Rotary To Delivery Clean Water

ErisonWith Project Mañana’s continued efforts to help improve the lives of impoverished children and their families, we are very excited to announce that we have partnered with the local chapter of the Rotary Club to delivery clean water filtration systems to the community of Villa Gonzalez.

Thanks to a very generous donation of 26 clean water filtration systems from Rotary Club Santiago de los Caballeros, Project Mañana will be able to provide clean (bacteria free) water to more than 200 people.

Developed by a Canadian engineer, each filter offers a simple design and is virtually maintenance free.  Constructed of concrete and filled with a mixture of sand, rocks, and a screen, the system is very easy to use.

Project Mañana is currently making arrangements to have the filters delivered to Villa Gonzalez and we’ll provide an update once they’ve been installed.

There are MANY more children in the community (we estimate another 200-300 conservatively) who desperately need education and nutrition. As more and more sponsors partner with Project Mañana team, we will expand the programs and services to as many children as we can!
