Dominican Republic – Las Palmas
A few years after ICC’s project was built in Guatemala, ICC founders, Kenneth and Alcyon Fleck, continued to hear of the needs of at-risk children in the Dominican Republic.

So, the dream began to model a Children’s Country Village in the same style as the first project in Guatemala. In 1982 Hogar Campestre Adventista “Las Palmas” was established.
Now, Las Palmas is a thriving home for orphaned children, and is making great achievements in industry projects.
