Orphan’s International Thanks LAWS & Phiota for their support.

Mi Gente…

You may remember a while back, Capicu Poetry had the honor of hosting an event at La Pregunta Cafe to benefit Casa Ana, Ophan International's project in Dominican Republic. 

Well that project still needs your support so stay tuned on ways you can help this incredible effort to provide services to a hundred young Dominican orphans.

As I am,

In an effort to recognize the efforts of young Latino leaders of today and tomorrow, Orphans International Worldwide would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the Psi Chapter of Phi Iota Alpha and the Latin American Women's Society for their participation in organizing a fund raiser and generously donating the proceeds to Orphans International Dominican Republic

The Casa Ana project, situated in Azua, Dominican Republic is preparing to open it's doors on June 29th, 2009 to initially welcome twenty-five orphaned and abandoned children from the surrounding marginalized neighborhoods and provide them with a summer program that will address their educational, medical and nutritional needs. Ultimately, Casa Ana expects to expand and provide services to one hundred children.
