Now, the team of Mike and Maribel (M&M) have joined their forces to create the Fundacion de La Tierra. The purpose of the Fundacion is to strengthen the original goal of helping those less fortunate in the Dominican Republic gain access to eye care and eye surgeries, enable access to better education, and to help provide basic food provisions and household necessities.
The Fundacion will also aim to help those less fortunate elsewhere in the Caribbean, to provide eyecare and eye surgery missions with Dr. Ehrenhaus, Maribel and Dr. Guzman providing the services through generosity and sponsorship.
