Jairo lives in Villa Laura, a village on the outskirts of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.
Jairo lives with his mother and father and four siblings. His dad was in a terrible accident almost a year ago. His leg was run over by a truck and was fractured in three places. He has been in a full leg cast since that time. The doctors do not know if he will ever have full function in that leg. this has made their circumstances even more difficult.
Currently, Jairo is in 3rd grade at the primary public school. His favorite subject is mathematics and handwriting. During his free time he likes to play with cars. He would like to be a doctor in the future.
