I would like to tell you some of the good that is being done here thanks to your generosity and prayers.
To start, let me introduce Lesandro, a 15-year-old boy who is mentally retarded and has been bed ridden for a year. The best way to describe his body is to think of the old pictures from Ethiopia . He is literally only skin and bones and the only words I have heard from his lips are “Agua” and “Lele”, his name. He has literally eaten a hole in his bed and lives inside of it. He is constantly soaked wet and suffers tremendously. Last year his femur was broken and he never went to the doctor to get it fixed. He has finally been brought to the doctor and we are getting him to therapy three times a week. By now, he is granted the med’s attention he so desperately needed.
There is also an extremely poor family we often visit that lives very close. During one of our visits, one of the six children was crying the whole time. His mother explained us that he was hungry. A little girl came in with what looked like apple cider we asked her where she had found it and she replied from the drainage ditch out back. I felt like taking each of those kids with me. Truly heartbreaking. The next day we had all of them come to the Heart’s Home and we brought them to Mother Teresa’s sisters of charity where they received enough food for the month.
