Victor is a kind young boy in Peru. He lives in a one-room house made with plywood, a thin metal roof, and a dirt floor along with his parents and 5 siblings. Victor’s mother stays at home to care for the house chores and the small children. His father works at various odd jobs as they are available, but it is very difficult for him to meet all of the family’s needs in this way. Your sponsorship will be a great blessing to Victor and his family and will give him hope for the future. Thank you!
