Flor lives with her parents and siblings in a small house on the outskirts of Quisqueya. She actually lives so close to the town dump that the fumes often reach her house. The family is so poor and eight people must share two beds. Most nights, the children sleep on the floor. Additionally, Flor’s house is close to a gully, and when it rains water floods it. Access to purified water is scarce, and their family has no running water nor indoor or outdoor plumbing. Most days they go to bed hungry. Flor suffers from asthma, but that doesn’t keep her from playing! Flor has been in school for 3 years now and is currently in 3rd grade. She is very serious about learning. Flor, along with both of her parents, is a new believer and is very firm in her faith.
