Presentation:  Roland Pagniano’s Dental Mission Trip to La Romana, Dominican Republic
Worked with World Mission Partners 
 
 
Worked with World Mission Partners and stayed at the Case de Campo Resort
They treated 70 patients this trip.
Emphasis is bringing families on the mission. 
They used a mobile dental RV that was donated by American dentists.  They visited two Bateyes (sugar cane workshops).  The workers are mostly Haitian immigrants that work for $5 a day and the Bateyes are the poorest communities in the DR.
Moises Sefrin is Rotary member and is the administrator for ever-growing hospital that includes a dental clinic where the group also treated patients.  Moises will be presenting to our club on 9/13 during a visit the United States.
Our club and Rotary Foundation donated $3,730 to the mission.  Other donations of dental supplies and money helped cover the cost.
