Review for Blue Missions Group Inc., Miami, FL, USA
Thanks to BLUE Missions, 16 families in the community of Firme in the Dominican Republic now have access to clean water and ventilated pit latrines. They are treated with the dignity they deserve after years of not having access to water and sanitation.
This started with a choice that began with the community of Firme who contacted BLUE. Then, 11 volunteers chose to serve. They chose to serve in the same community they would sleep in. They chose service that is collaborative, compassionate, and builds community. This led to hard work that built bathrooms, something simple I take for granted. These bathrooms were made possible by the choices of former volunteers who worked alongside the same community to gain access to clean water the year before. These rights gave the community of Firme the freedom to choose how to live daily life. A campesina I got to know well, Urbina, chooses to pursue her dream career as an architect.
This cycle of service touches volunteer, campesino, staff, leader, intern, donor, you, me. It truly unites everyone. It is carefully crafted and extremely thoughtful under incredible leadership. I cannot wait to continue authentic immersion service with BLUE Missions!
