Antonia lives in Javillar in the Dominican Republic. When we met her, she was single mom with 4 children. Her husband died shortly after the birth of her last child. The home she lived in is extremely poor. It was falling down and very dangerous for the family to live in but they had no other options.
The need was urgent and we wanted to help as quickly as possible. As soon as we became aware of her situation, we took different people to see the home. David and Cyndie Bach were some of those people. Upon seeing her conditions, they offered a lump sum to build the home.
Again family, friends and Antonia herself worked alongside Dominican Starfish workers to create a beautiful result.
