I'm Ricardo Depiense
Ricardo was born in the Dominican Republic, even though his parents were Haitian. He currently lives in a Batey. A batey is a shanty-town camp where sugarcane cutters live. We have come alongside this batey in Brador to help care for children. Both of Ricardo's parents have passed away and his grandmother takes care of him. He has 3 other siblings and spends most of his time with them. Ricardo loves to play marbles with his friends.
