My Story

Hello! Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that I walk for forty-five minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Jaime. I am 9 years old and I will have my birthday in December. I take classes in my village and I am a first-grade student. I am repeating my grade. My school is about forty-five minutes away from my home. I love P.E. (physical education) but Mathematics is a little difficult for me. At the moment I have not received any homework from my school. At home I enjoy playing soccer.

The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My father´s job consists of farming the land and picking coffee beans on the coast at the end of every year. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. My family and I are members of Catholic Church. I am grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.

God bless you!

A-A-C NOTE: After the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in our country (March 13, 2020), our President ordered the closure of all the schools in order to prevent children becoming affected by this virus. We do not know when the schools will open again. However, most of the schools are assigning homework to their students to cover the content for the current school year. As a team, we are praying that God takes control of this situation soon so that we may continue on with our lives.
