The Least of These Ministries is an ecumenical Christian organization headquartered in Westminster, Maryland. This group is dedicated to carrying Christ’s message to the Haitian & Dominican workers in the sugar cane, banana, and plantain work camps within the Dominican Republic. The ministry’s flagship project is a supplemental food distribution program which serves many families across 13 bateys each week. Our hope is to improve residents’ health, strengthen their resolve and desire to help themselves. Support is offered for both physical and spiritual needs of these people.
The Ministry provides one meal a week consisting of uncooked rice, rice & beans, or Manna Packs to several thousand people in the Barahona area bateys.
‘Manna Packs’ are protein-fortified rice meals provided to us through a partnership with Feed My Starving Children.
The Least of These Ministries currently distributes over 780,000 meals per year, a project that has been faithfully ongoing since 1998.
A $10.00 donation provides approximately 34 meals.
