Dominican Starfish Foundation is a charity group from Canada that builds homes for those in great need in the Dominican Republic. The funds for the Roserio home were donated by Chris and Kym Kilgour with Color My World, a humanitarian foundation from the United States. They not only provided the funds but a group of 17 people from Color My World traveled to the Dominican Republic in February 2014 and helped build the home. This picture presentation shows before and after images of this project.
