“Ada ó Friend of the Month” from CatholicMom.com
Lisa Hendey has graciously partnered with us by featuring a monthly invitation on CatholicMom.com to consider sponsoring a friend through CFCA. This month we chose to tell Ada’s story.
CFCA welcomes children, youth and other individuals living with varying degrees of physical and mental disabilities to participate in its Hope for a Family sponsorship program. Often people with special needs living in poverty have little or no access to health and rehabilitation services. This can make life difficult for them, and also for the family members who support them.
One of these children with special needs is 12-year-old Ada, who lives in Nicaragua with her family. (To preserve the privacy of our sponsored friends, we donít share details about their special needs online.) Ada likes to paint and helps with household chores such as washing dishes and sweeping the house. Sponsoring Ada would help her family pay for her medical needs and support her education.
