Amanda got more information about her family for me. Her parents are divorced. Her father lives in another city to work and sends money home to support her. Iris has zero contact with her mother. That breaks my heart. I don't know what I would do without my mom. I pray that I can show Iris tons of love and let her know how much God loves her.
Child Development Center Information
This exciting church partner is located 5 km east of San Pedro Sula in the coastal community of Colonia Bermejo, home to approximately 4,100 residents. Typical houses are constructed of wood and have dirt floors. The spoken language is Spanish.
The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bananas, chicken and rice. Common health problems in this area include respiratory illnesses and diarrhea. Most adults in Colonia Bermejo work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $158 per month. This community needs employment opportunities, a sewage system, street repairs, water and housing improvements.
Sponsorship allows the staff of CDI Sueño de Dios to provide your sponsored child with Christian education, camp, evangelism, medical check ups, nutrition and hygiene education, recreational activities, birthday celebrations, school uniforms, supplies and shoes. The center staff will also provide nutritional education, counseling and evangelism for the parents or guardians of these children
Also, here is the gift that Amanda will be bringing for Iris (and all of the other 12 girls!). She paid for all of these gifts out of her own pocket as a thanks for sponsoring. I just can't believe it. She's a wonderful woman. I am just so happy.
