I would like first of all to thank you for taking the time to read my update. I tell you that I walk for one hour to arrive to the feeding program. I am Jorge Amilcar but everybody affectionately calls me Yorchi. I am 13 years old and I had my birthday in January. I no longer attend school due to our low resources; I only passed my sixth grade. Now, I am helping my father with his duties.
The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My mother’s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework, and my father’s job consists of farming the land. We get some extra money when my mother sells her hens. Thank God, the pandemic has not affected my family. We are members of the Catholic Church but it is closed for now. 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.
Thinking of you!
Jorge Amilcar Tzoy de la Cruz
