Stories of Change
Ashley Kahila – Haiti
Frantz is 4 years old and first came to Respire to receive therapy services. It was learned that his mom had to quit her job when Frantz was born due to the fact that she did not have any one to watch him during the day. Since he has Down Syndrome most people will not provide childcare for him.
Through the programs at Respire Haiti, Frantz and his family now have more access to food, water, and other needed supplies. He is also able to receive an education that most children with disabilities or special needs do not have that opportunity in Haiti.
