Testimony of the Oblate Sisters in the Dominican Republic


(Madrid, Spain) – A documentary with the title “Bajos de Haina, The Hope Reborn”,   on the work and testimony, that the Oblate Sisters of the Most Holy Redeemer offer in the Dominican Republic was published by Radio -Television  (rtve.es) of the Spanish Episcopal Conference.

The Oblate Sisters, in fact, arrived more than 25 years ago in the city of Bajos de Haina, in the Dominican Republic, to offer help to Sex Workers. The social activity of the Catholic Church in this country has been decisive for the future of many families, who today are grateful and committed to promote and defend the dignity of women.

In the documentary we understand the difficulty that this harsh reality presents and before which the Oblates, the religious community of the great Redemptorist family, commit themselves more every day, succeeding in reaching out to the periphery, a part of the wounded world, which must be assisted. The years of hard work have yielded some fruit. This continues to stimulate the desire to transform and convert this reality, the current objective of the message of the Gospel.

This documentary focuses on this particular situation in the Dominican Republic with current data and shows, through images, the work of the sisters, the transformation of some new volunteers and the joint work in a parish in one of the most difficult areas of the country.
