BBC has come alongside Varsity Bible Church in Calgary’s NW, to help Dominican and Haitian church and community leaders, through T.E.A.R.S. Ministries. During the past several years, teams of volunteers have assisted with joint community projects such as day camps, water purification development, nutritious meals and construction projects in La Vega, Dominican Republic. BBC helps these projects through designated giving and BBC’s general mission fund.

I accompanied Margot to the DR as a volunteer Nursing Instructor to 15, third year nursing students from the U of C. This was a continuum to their community nursing course which required them to complete several work projects while in the DR. The video from one of the students was a summary of their experience in the DR (Maria Auxilliadora and Soto communities). see the video here
