Jean Pierre is an athletic and active boy who lives with his parents and two siblings in Peru. Jean Pierre comes from an unstable home. His father moves in and out of the home depending on whether Jean Pierres parents are arguing or not. This instability has affected all the children. They live in a rented house with few facilities and amenities. Jean Pierres home life has made him very quiet. Jean Pierre feels most at home on the soccer field but loves playing any sport. When he grows up he would like to be a soccer player. By sponsoring Jean Pierre, you will be giving him access to consistent care and stability. With your help, the development center will not only be able to provide Jean Pierre with his basic needs and education, but also spiritual guidance and biblical teaching. Thank you for blessing Jean Pierre and his family.
