WHO WE ARE? FUNCAMA, Camacho Maceo Foundation
In spite of the Dominican Republic's popularity among international tourists, many Dominican families are facing a life in poverty. The poverty affects the country's most vulnerable segment of population: Dominican children. More than one million children in the Dominican Republic live in poverty and roughly 578,000 children under the age of 15 are without parental care. Around 20 per cent of them are orphans.
Among the most relevant factors that increase the likelihood of a child losing parental care are: child pregnancy, chronic diseases such as HIV, mental or physical disabilities and prison sentences of the child's parents.
Children whose parents have contracted the HIV virus suffer the effects of economic hardship. Additionally, their families are often being discriminated against and stigmatized. A high number of children become orphans because their parents die from AIDS.
Many of these children end up in the streets where they face a life under precarious circumstances. In order to survive, they are forced to work and give up school.
The Dominican Republic Child Labor Survey indicates that roughly 15 per cent of all Dominican children aged 5-14 are engaged in labor activities.
As soon as they stop going to school, their lives are often marked by a vicious circle of drugs, crime and violence. Approximately 17,000 children who participate in the labor force do so without attending school. The percentage is particularly high for boys and for children who live in rural areas.
We created FUNCAMA ORGANIZATION, hoping to be able to help many of this families, orphaned and abandoned children in and around Santo Domingo.
Therefore, in this way we organize activities and sporting events all over the world to raise funds in support of our humanitarian cause.
