Greetings! My name is Kleber Lora and I am the Country Director of Compassion Dominican Republic. I joined Compassion in 2005 after a time of prayer asking the Lord for an opportunity to serve the poor. My wife Layla and I have three children. Our older daughter came to us as a step-daughter when we were asked to be a transition home for her for a week. That week became 10 years!
