Angelina Was Homeless, But You Are Sending Her to College

 
Angelina knew she would have to work hard to achieve her dreams. She was born in Altagracia, an impoverished batey in the Dominican Republic. A batey is a shantytown originally built for migrant sugarcane workers. Within the batey, Angelina lived with her mother and seven siblings in a tiny house.

Malaria is treatable. But it’s hard for a child living in poverty to get the medical care they need.
