Be An Angel’s International Outreach Program Supports Medically Fragile, Special Needs Children in the Dominican Republic
Casa de Luz means House of Light and is the bright star in the lives of 40 severely disabled children in the Dominican Republic. Born into poverty, these children were neglected with no one to care for them. At Casa de Luz they receive medical care, nourishment, physical therapy and a loving family. Find out more about what House of Light is doing and how you can help.

How You Can Lift The Darkness For Casa De Luz and Support Be An Angel’s International Mission
A Water Works Plant
Be An Angel has created a Gospel centered partnership with Water At Work Ministry and House of Light in the construction of a complete water works plant that will produce sanitary and bottled water in and around the community of Santo Domingo. Numerous ( too many to count!) residents are desperately in need off clean and safe water. The orphans at House of Light require water on a daily basis and yet it often becomes an enormous challenge.
To date, the land was cleared and the building of the physical structure is in place. The roof was recently poured and set while volunteers painted the primer coats for the walls. The floors, and adding the complete reverse osmosis purifying system remains a huge and challenging task.
Once built, hardworking, committed local people are trained to maintain the business efficiently. They will sell and deliver water to people in need at a rate they can afford.
All this takes place so that House of Light can become self sufficient in their care for these precious children!
