Jonathan is a darling boy. He is growing up in a very poor neighborhood outside of Lima, Peru. Jonathan and his family live in a small home with one room. It is made with cardboard, bamboo, and other scraps. Jonathan’s father works selling goods on the streets. His income is unstable and very low making it difficult to provide all his family’s needs. Your sponsorship will be a huge blessing to Jonathan and his family. At the center he will receive nutritious meals, medical care, help with his education, and most importantly he will be taught God’s precious Word. Thank you for making an eternal impact in Jonathan’s life.
