In 1998, Hurricane George brought catastrophic damage to the DR, forcing most of La Romana's poorest people to higher ground. This dramatic shift in people became what is now known as “Barrio George.” Since 2005, Covenant has sent well more than a couple dozen teams to the barrios of La Romana in partnership with the Free Methodist Churches of that city. Teams have primarily focused construction, medical and dental clinics, baseball clinics, physical therapy, prayer and support.
