This is one of the children I'm painting for my "Moni's Kids" Project. All proceeds will go back to the children portrayed in this series. To learn more about this project, please click here or you may follow the progress of this series on my blog here.
Viladrin was born in Cap Haitien with his sisters Vanessa and Youseline. Their mother was suffering from mental illness and unable to care for the children, who were living in the streets when their aunt asked if the children could come to live at NLCH in 2002. Viladrin is 13 years old and was very malnourished. His favorite sports are soccer and basketball. He wants to be an agronomist.
