Carmela de Jesús Saboya Aguilar

Community Coordinator

My name is Carmela Saboya Aguilar. I was born in the province of Rioja. I am married and have 8 beautiful children. 18 years ago, I learned about the gospel of Jesus Christ. 7 years ago, I started helping Bountiful Children. I am very happy to be part of it. It is great to see acts of love towards children in need.

Bountiful's Community Coordinators

Community coordinators serve with Bountiful as volunteers. They organize other local volunteers and together conduct screenings, train families, distribute locally-purchased supplements, and follow up on infant development.
