Bob from the Rumba Bar donates basketball equipment
Last Monday afternoon December 2, the renewed basketball court in Maranatha was declared open again amid loud cheers of the Maranatha youth. Half a year ago, a storm dragged the basketball board an ring along with the studs into the nearby river. As a result, the youth had to walk some 10 miles to the sports field of Los Castillos to practice their sport. But Bob Rumba Bar from Sosúa brought salvation. He made materials (cement, bricks, steel wire, metal ring, etc.) available to refurbish the sports field back into a basketball court.
The youth, led by a few adults, did a very good job to make the sports field ready to play again. And Monday afternoon, the sports field was officially opened and many thanks went to Bob from Rumba Bar for his financial support. But there is more: Bob said he had received a call from Santa from New York. All children from Maranatha will soon be invited to the restaurant at the Rumba Bar for a Christmas celebration. Santa will be there for sure and even some clowns will be present. Of course, there will be a nice gift for every child. Fortunately, there are still some entrepreneurs in Sosúa who are socially involved and not only on words.
