Carlos is a radiant young boy who comes from a lowly family. His father does his best to work and provide for the family. However, the basic needs of clothing, food, shoes, and education are not always met because his income is too low. Carlos’ mother does the housework and takes care of Carlos while the father is working. The house is made up of bamboo walls, a tin roof, and a dirt floor. Your sponsorship will give hope to Carlos and her family. At the center, he will receive nutritious meals, medical care and a good education. Most importantly, he will be shown the love of God through your kindness and the staff at the childcare center. Thank you for choosing to sponsor Carlos and making an eternal difference in his life.
