We thank all people who had support us in the past and also those who are helping us right this moment and who ever will do this lovely act. All of us together provide medical care for the poor, dig wells where there is a lack of clean water, fly medical supplies to remote locations in our own plane and provide educational and agricultural assistance to underserved communities from our base in Puerto Plata, Sosua, Dominican Republic, and that’s possible only if people gets involved.
When we started this project, all was good, but by the end of 2009 it was apparent that we needed a commercial attraction to expand, maintain and perpetuate these free clinics. The ideas to open a zip line and jungle where monkeys could enjoy their native habitat were born.
That’s why Monkey Jungle and Zip Line Adventures was created and Today in 2016, MJ has been visited by over 50,000 guests and the free clinics at Monkey Jungle have treated over 21,000 medical and dental patients and had 45 health care teams volunteer from 3 to 6 days each. Over 25,000 free prescriptions have been dispensed. In early 2013 Monkey Jungle Dental Clinic was expanded by 500 square feet to include two more operatories. Live Different, a wonderful Canadian youth organization contributed $4,000 USD to the $20,000 expansion and spent a week doing manual labor and the beautiful murals in the clinic. Your visits to Monkey Jungle and Zip Line Adventures help support our efforts. Thank you all.
So, this way we say Thanks to all Monkey Jungle and ZipLine Adventures Staff, Customers, Tour Operators and everyone that makes this happen somehow.
