Baseball Africa/Dominican Republic - Looking for Donations of Equipment and Money

Baseball Africa/Dominican Republic Donation program has begun and is Dr. Bruhl is looking for donations to the program.

African and Dominican children are forced to live in poverty and experience trials many of our children will never know.  Often they have little to do and few recreational pursuits to follow.  In the Dominican Republic, baseball has begun an important recreational past time and is beginning to receive notice in the African continent as well. 

In the recent Little League World Series, the first representative from the African country of Uganda was represented.  Many of the boys wore their first set of baseball shoes during the tournament.  Often children play without mitts, regular bats, or even real baseballs because they simply don’t have them.  Sharing equipment amongst players is the only way teams can play the game of baseball if they have enough to even play.  One of the most effective ways for us to share our love of baseball with these children is through donation of equipment and uniforms. 

Over the next 3 years, I will be traveling to Kenya and the Dominican Republic numerous times and will be donating equipment and uniforms.  In Kenya, I will be introducing baseball in the bush country region where it has never been played.  My vision would be the evolution of Kenyan baseball to one day bring professional players from Kenya as they have come from the Dominican.  Moreover, I will be donating to various programs in the Dominican to continue to give more children an opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty and discover true enjoyment along the way.  

Donation inquiry can be made by contacting Dr. Warren Bruhl via email: dc4kids@aol.com
