In North America, our mission is to collect supplies for the children and send the message that volunteers are needed and welcome!

make someones life better

Our mission each year is to collect clothing for the 10 orphans and their care-giver. Volunteers are needed to help find, collect, and clean the much-needed clothing in preparation for delivery! 

school uniforms needed!

School uniforms are expensive in Costa Rica, (approx. $50.00 per child) and each child is required to have two.

The skirts, blouses, slacks and shorts must be clean and pressed and their black shoes hand polished daily.

 There is a constant need for pajamas, water-proof shoes, home and health care supplies, hardware and building materials, big and small appliances, security and computer equipment, outdoor play equipment, parts and repair for the orphanage only vehicle, tools and office supplies.ABINA KIDS EATINGWithout the help of our donors, the children are sleeping in their own beds, living as a family with loving care-givers! Thanks to you and other ministries who support RdV, the children are no longer orphaned and abused…For the first time in their lives, they are living in a safe and loving permanent home environment..

We also dismantled the children’s swing-set in preparation for the big move and a donor funded event was enjoyed by all of the children at the Cariari Mall and a half day of swimming at Adventure Inn..

A real treat for the children and care-givers.
