Those who were helped with your Christmas gifts have nothing. They live in the dumps on windy hills, have no running water, and electricity is scarce. Men, women, and children suffer from malnutrition and lung diseases caused by the continual breathing of polluted burning garbage fumes. They are people like Maria . . .
“Maria, a single mother of 34, and her four children are new to the Casa. The Sisters are helping them with food and medical assistance. Maria’s twin daughters, now age 5, were born premature. As they started kindergarten, the teachers noticed the girls were in need of medical care because of epilepsy, developmental, neurological, and vision problems.
One of the twins needs glasses and orthopedic shoes to help her walk. The other twin suffers from shingles in different parts of her little body, but the mother does not have money to buy medicines.
The mother is in anguish, as she does not have the money for treatments that both girls need to develop. They live in a tiny house, very poor, with Maria’s blind father. They do not own the land. Maria’s 12-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter were recently chosen for scholarship aid from the Casa because they are serious students. Now that the Casa is helping this family with food and medicines, the Casa pediatrician is starting to know and study the case of the twins. The mother said that she feels relieved and has some hope in her sad condition of life. She left the Casa thanking God.”
God Bless You for Your Generous Support During the Christmas Season
Please pray for the people and the Sisters. The impoverished men, women, and children who come to the Casa are truly grateful and feel your love and care. Without YOU, they would not have celebrated such a Happy Christmas.
