Grace Paediatric Medical Centre

Many children in Puerto Plata suffer from treatable illnesses and have no realistic opportunity to access the care they need.

Grace Paediatric Medical Centre addresses the desperate need for local, specialized paediatric care, following a “no child refused” policy. This means that every child seeking help, regardless of socioeconomic status, will receive state-of-the-art healthcare.


The hope and dream of every parent is for their child to receive medical care when they are sick. The poor in the Puerto Plata region of the Dominican Republic are desperate for a place that focuses on the health of children. The closest paediatric hospital is over 4 hours away, which is unaffordable when you can barely feed your family. For the poor to be able to take their children to a first-class hospital with highly skilled professionals, fully equipped with medical labs, testing capabilities, and treatment rooms will be a dream-come-true. This paediatric hospital will serve the poor and demonstrate God’s love and mercy for generations to come.

We are frequently told stories of how people were affected by the work of The Samaritan Foundation in the Dominican Republic. It’s the hope within these stories that encourage us to keep doing what we’re doing, and maybe it’ll encourage you to join us in this mission!
