A Valentineís Day story from two sponsored aging friends in Chile

Alicia and Jose in Chile Happy Valentineís Day to the CFCA community!

This report from our project in Valparaiso, Chile, warmed our hearts with its timeless message of hope, dignity and love.

Alicia and Jose, both in their 70s and sponsored through CFCA, were suffering from loneliness.

Alicia was a widow whose children lived far away from her, and Jose was renting a small, windowless room with no access to natural light.

One day they met at the CFCA office. It didnít take long before both realized they had found a special companion with whom to share the journey of life.

Read their love story.
