Update from Carlos

Hello Dear Sponsors

How are you? I hope you are fine. I write to you to tell you I am fine thank God. I want to thank you for all you do for me. I hope you and your family are fine like I am. I am studying and I hope to pass all my exams to pass to next grade. I would like to share a moment with you and your family, to go to church and the beach. Thank you for everything you do for me!

Your sponsored child: Carlos

Update from Children International


Carlos turned 17 years old on his last birthday, which was in September. The last time he was measured and weighed, he had grown to 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighed 14o pounds.


Carlos attends school. According to Carlos, his favorite subjects are math, grammar and science.

Like other children in the Dominican Republic, Carlos loves to spend his free time engaged in activities like playing baseball, running and playing with tops.  He counts sining and dancing among his talents or hobbies.

Home Life

Carlos lives with his family.  Carlos’ father, Carlos Rafael, is a daily worker.  His mother, Dominga, is a maid. Their average household income for the month is approximately $175.

The family lives in a house, which is constructed of concrete walls, concrete flooring and a concrete roof. It has a kitchen, a multi-use room and a bedroom.  Carlos sleeps in a bed.  Cooking facilities consist of a gas stove. Electricity is available and the sanitary facility is a toilet. The family is fortunate to have running water.


A big thank you to all of the Care2 members that click daily for Carlos and the other children that Care2 sponsors.  Please keep clicking daily!  For more information on sponsoring a child, please complete the form below.
