Gabriel is one of the 81 children currently living at the Mission Home. His mother fled Venezuela from the economic crisis. She showed up to the Mission home a few months ago with Gabriel and his baby brother begging the sisters to take her children. The sisters told her she had to go to the police (all the children come here through the state programs). But when they told her this, little Gabriel pleaded with them to let them stay. Crying, he said he just wanted to eat and have a place to sleep.
We are kicking off a three week campaign with the goal of increasing monthly donations by $3,000. This money will help children like Gabriel live at the Mission home and go to school.
Where your donation will go:
–$25/month funds school fees for a child
–$40/month funds school fees, uniforms, books and supplies for one child living at the Mission home
–$250/month pays for one boy to live at our boys’ home and attend school
–$500/month pays for one university student
Please help us reach our goal! Click here to become a monthly donor
You will be happy to know that Gabriel is one of the happiest and kindest children here. We hired a tutor for the children who have never been to school and he dedicates himself with enthusiasm everyday. The other day he walked into the house where the Missionary Sisters live and hugged one of them. When I asked about it, she said he is so happy that she cares for his little brother he often comes to say hello and visit his brother. The kid is a sweetheart!
