I recently donated 2 hula hoops to Dr. Bruce McFarlane Orthodontics to take to the Dominican Republic. A volunteer initiative, Dr.Bruce and fellow colleagues, students, and volunteers visited a local orphanage in the Monte Cristi and neighbouring areas to perform dental work. They stayed at the Orphanage in Monte Cristi, in the NorthWest corner of DR (very close to the Haitian Border). The overseeing company is Orphanage Outreach.
Dr.Bruce was kind enough to forward some pictures of the experience and the kids playing with the hoops. When I look at these pictures I can feel the innocence and playfulness in their hearts. Enjoy!
