The Circle of 12 is a public 501c3 charity, incorporated July 2008, dedicated to serving the children and young adults with special mental and physical needs who live in the Bateyes - the sugarcane work camps - of the Dominican Republic. These children are the poorest of the poor. They live without good access to healthcare, clean water, post-primary education, adequate food, and most importantly the proper care for their medical ailments. The Circle of 12 is a group of concerned, charitable people and companies who want to see these children and their families live a better life; live to their fullest potential as human beings. The monies raised provide food, basic medical care, and therapies. On a case-by-case basis, we also provide services specific to a child's needs such as teaching Braille to a blind child, giving speech or occupational therapy to children with Cerebral Palsy and other afflictions, and in rare cases moving families to better housing. The rent for the housing is paid in full by The Circle of 12.
The Circle of 12, Inc is a mission outreach of First Baptist Church, Moorestown.
The founder, Todd Moreland just returned from a Circle of 12 mission trip to the Dominican Republic. For more information on The Circle of 12, Inc go to www.circleof12.com
