In Jamaica, Yanique would wake up every day desperately wondering how she would feed her family. She had no money to buy food and she was very worried about 2-month-old Kaleela, who was nursing.
Today, because of loving people like you, Kaleela is a healthy, happy little girl. Your compassionate gift to our Annual Fund Drive provides lifesaving food, medicine, emergency supplies and other necessities to help ease the suffering of children living in poverty in the Caribbean and Latin America.
Like many children suffering in the misery of destitute poverty, Arnoldo and his family struggle every day to survive.
The shack they call home in Honduras is just a bunch of rusty metal panels held together with sticks and nails. The roof is full of holes and leaks whenever it rains, turning the dirt floor to mud. Food is expensive and work is not always promised. And when there is no work, there is no food.
Watching her son Josue slowly perish is Janet’s worst nightmare. Janet, 23, is raising two children in Nicaragua where jobs are scarce, food prices have skyrocketed and grinding poverty wears down the hardiest souls. When 3-month-old Josue was unable to eat and grew weaker, his pitiful cries were torturous.
