Want to join us in making a difference? We are raising money to benefit the La Romana Mission Trip. Our team consists of members representing three churches: First Church UCC in Nashua, NH; Sterling, MA and West Boylston, MA. Any donation will help make an impact. Thank you in advance for contributing to this cause that means so much to our team.
Every spring, a group (20 to 30 people) travels from central Massachusetts to La Romana, Dominican Republic, to serve the faithful Haitian sugarcane workers and their families. There are over 160 remote villages in the sugarcane fields, called bateyes, in this region. The workers and their families are cut off from the rest of the world, living in desperate and impoverished conditions. They lack basic amenities such as permanent housing, clean water, electricity, education, and access to medical care. For both us and the sugarcane workers, the trip is a life-changing experience.
