NEW YORK. –  Friends of Lead Free Children Foundation with the Support of Continental Food and Beverage Inc./Inca Kola USA, completed their annual Humanitarian Aid Mission to the Dominican Republic from March 29th through April 2nd 2017.

CF&B/ Inca Kola USA has been working with Steve Null and his foundation for almost 20 years and we are very proud of the work that has been accomplished by Steve with our support. This year we are proud to have brought together a diverse group representing Corporate America, an American University, their student body, health care companies, local chambers of commerce and media. The Coca Cola Company was represented by Mr. Rudy Beserra Sr. Vice President Latin Affairs and his wife Lois Beserra. Mercy College and their medical students were represented by Lenny Caro the Chief Community Relations Officer. We also had Kyetah Bryan from Affinity Health plan with us and the doctors they have brought. Additionally we had Aetna, a fortune 100 company, represented by Victor Pupo along with the health care professionals that they have brought. Representing local women owned businesses in New York was Quenia Abreu, CEO and Founder of the NY Womens Chamber of Commerce. Our media partners are NY Business Latino represented by Rosemary Carrillo and Ramon Anibal TV represented by Ramon Anibal. Locally in the Dominican Republic our business partners Comercializadora Tribi represented by Miguelina Chalas and Ramon Jansen joined the group.

The Director of Friends of Lead Free Children, Steve Null, stated that “this year was the best mission so far in the history of this cause”. “Our Mission was able to conduct 1200 basic health exams for pregnant woman and children as well as distribute the vitamin supplements that have been the corner stone of this mission since 2000”. The mission visited 3 areas in the Island Nation. Haina, a port town to the West of the Capital Santo Domingo. San Pedro de Macoris, where we serviced the Sugar cane field workers, and Aldeas Infantiles an orphanage that houses and educates children and young women.

We are proud that our business is in a position to offer such help to the poorest communities that have little to no access to regular preventive health care. CF&B/Inca Kola USA has always given back to local communities and this is our way to say thank you to the enormous Dominican community in the United States that supports our brand Inca Kola. The Mission is in honor of The Founders of Inca Kola in the United States, Lourdes and Luis Jardines Del Castillo who were always a part of this mission during their lives and we are proud to carry on their legacy.
