Saintana’s home is filled with the sound of children’s laughter.
She has two kids of her own, but over the years she has raised dozens of children whose mothers were unable to care for them. Currently, seven children live with her, ranging in age from one to eighteen years old.
“The love for children is deep in my heart. I love raising them, playing with them, feeding them, and bathing them.”
Keeping children healthy and happy with some help from HAS.
Worry can be inescapable as a mother, but a recent gift from HAS helps to ease Saintana’s mind. She and her family were lucky recipients of an HAS biosand filter.
“The filter helps us save money—I never have to buy water for our kids living here. And they are very rarely sick!”
She and her husband, Phillipe, who runs a nearby school, host an HAS mobile clinic regularly at their home. On the rare occasion that one of her children does need more serious medical care, she takes them to the hospital in Deschapelles.
