Kids get the KC Royal’s Treatment in the DR@ntarget
Kansas City Royals Invest in Kids with The Global Orphan Project
SANTO DOMINGO — A personal tour of club facilities. Seats behind home plate. A private lunch in the club’s dining facilities. This kind of red carpet treatment is generally reserved for the wealthy and well connected. But that’s exactly what the children living in the care of our local church partner, Casa Amor, in the Dominican Republic experienced this week thanks to Jeff Diskin and the Kansas City Royals.
Located in Santo Domingo, Casa Amor is one of The Global Orphan Project’s local church partners caring for children in their community in a myriad of ways. Because of their residential care ministry, 30 children currently call Casa Amor home.
The last two years, the Royals and their DR farm team have been busy investing in the lives of the children at Casa Amor. They helped put in a grass field. They purchased mattresses, helped build a computer lab, and improved the power supply. They made personal visits, taught baseball clinics, and this week welcomed the kids to their facility, giving them the Royals’ treatment. It was a great day . . . and one that gives the feeling they are not done caring.
At GO, we are proud to embrace the KC Royals as our home team. Anyone who follows the team knows they care about each other and our city. We are more than grateful that they also care about orphans.
