(February 2014) 4Life executives and distributors visited La Casa Rosada orphanage in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, which has received support from Foundation 4Life since 2006. 4Life attendees included 4Life Founders David and Bianca Lisonbee, 4Life President and CEO Steve Tew, Platinum International Diamonds Juan and Damaris Rosado and Yadira Olivo, Gold International Diamonds Esdras Cabrera Alberto and Rosa Nelia Vargas, José Luis and Maria Martínez, and Dionny Recio.
The kids welcomed their guests with a dance and a poem reading in English. The 4Life team then served lunch to the kids and Sisters. Plus, they toured the library where Foundation 4Life-sponsored computer classes are held and the area where Foundation 4Life Montessori preschool classes take place.
The visit was also a great chance for the 4Life guests to follow up with David Guillen and Aneurys Perez, two La Casa Rosada young men who are attending college at Universidad Catolica, thanks to scholarships from Foundation 4Life. In fact, David and Bianca saw Aneurys at Las Américas International Airport when they arrived! Aneurys works there as an immigration officer, and he was very proud to show David and Bianca all that he has accomplished, thanks to Foundation 4Life.
La Casa Rosada Director Sister Josephina said, “I loved meeting Bianca, David, and other 4Life guests. I was so impressed by their simplicity and sensitivity, and the love they have for these children.”
“People say that home is where the heart is,” Bianca commented. “It always feels like home when we visit La Casa Rosada. That place never ceases to amaze me with its spirit of love, gratitude, and happiness.”
