Jonny and his wife and 5 children live in poverty in the Dominican Republic. They had their fifth child, a baby boy in March. Jonny has a job as a construction worker, working for a non-profit foundation . His salary of $12 a day is barely enough to buy food for his family and would never allow him to move forward in repairing his home or bettering his family situation.
Ayuda Humanitarian is a dental group that has come to the Dominican several times to help the people there. Their group partnered with Dominican Starfish Foundation to tear down the home on June 27, 2016.
