Cristo Viene 1,2 Group's story

Santa lives in a community in the Romana province in the Dominican Republic. Although Romana is known for being a tourist spot, it has very many poor areas like the communities characterised by people living in extreme poverty, both Dominicans and Haitian immigrants.

Santa has a small business selling different types of food like ice-cream, pasties, rice, juices, flour and sugar. She also makes a living selling underwear. The few opportunities for economic development have meant that Santa has to work selling several types of products in order to support her family.

Santa tells us that with the earnings from the business, she has been able to buy a bed, a freezer and a stove. Santa dreams of being able to send her children to university one day and of having her own house.

Santa needs your help to buy merchandise and to be able to continue with her business.

Thank you for supporting the Cristo Viene 1,2 group.
