Happy Father’s Day: Ruben and his family in Colombia

Father’s Day is celebrated June 17 in the U.S., and we want to take this time to celebrate all fathers in the CFCA world.

We lift up fathers in our CFCA projects who struggle from dusk to dawn to put food on the table, those who overcome their fears to allow their sons to go to school instead of working in the fields, those who understand the value of education for their daughters and those who appreciate their wives as true partners in providing for the family.

We lift up fathers in the U.S. who work to instill in their children an appreciation for what they have, those who model God’s loving kindness and those who desire most of all to leave a legacy of generosity and compassion for their children.

Here is a video of a special father, Ruben in Colombia, and the daily sacrifices he makes to provide for his family.

  1. Ruben and Yuli have a beautiful family. Ruben and Yuli understand that education is the way out of poverty. I am sure their children will be successful. Keep up the hard work! Thank you CFCA for telling us their story. Thank you to the Sponsors for helping Ruben and Yuli achieve their life goals.
