Established in 2003, the CURE Dominican Republic Hospital was CURE’s first presence in Latin America. Located in the capital city of Santo Domingo, the hospital is a pediatric orthopedic hospital that provides inpatient surgical and rehabilitative care to disabled children. It serves more than 700 outpatients each month and maintains a very active spiritual ministry. The hospital sends surgical teams into Haiti as well.

It is estimated that about 7% of the general population of the Dominican Republic is disabled, meaning that there are more than 400,000 Dominicans with disabilities, many of them children and most of them coming from the lower socio-economic classes. There are very few support networks or social services in Dominican Republic that offer help and hope to the disabled. Less than 15% of the disabled in the Dominican Republic have access to any sort of rehabilitation services, and what services do exist are often affordable only by families who are able to pay, certainly not the majority of those in need. Most public hospitals are in extremely poor condition and must deal with crisis situations rather than a disability which is not always viewed as something worth treating.

The CURE Dominican Republic Hospital is providing compassionate care to disabled children who now have the opportunity to experience walking, running and even smiling for the first time in their lives.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
