Adilson is a quiet boy who enjoys playing soccer with his friends. He dreams of becoming a police officer when he grows up! Adilson lives with his parents and two siblings in a small rural home in Peru. His family is very poor, and they lack basic facilities in their home such as water and electricity. Adilson’s only source of food is his father’s crop that he grows as a farmer. Because of this, Adilson has shown signs of malnutrition. With your help, Adilson’s deepest physical, spiritual, intellectual, social, and emotional needs can be met at Yungar. Thank you for being a part of Adilson’s life and for giving him daily access to the life-changing power of the Word of God!
