Aurelia sells her vegetables at the marketplace.
The money Aurelia receives from selling her vegetables is the family’s only source of income.
Imagine having such an insecure, ramshackle house that you dread the thought of anyone visiting you.
For one family in Tanzania, this was part of their daily life.
Aurelia and her three children, two of whom are sponsored through CFCA, used to live in a home made from iron sheets.
Have you had a chance to check out the CFCA Christmas catalog yet? It offers a great opportunity to share the true spirit of Christmas with a friend or family member.
You can choose from five funds that support the†needs of people living in poverty around the world: scholarship program assistance; HIV/AIDS funding; food crisis support; housing support; and Christmas celebrations and gifts for children and the aging.
So instead of standing in long shopping lines for sweaters and picture frames and toys, we invite you to make a cup of hot chocolate, relax in your most comfortable, cozy slippers and avoid the crowds while you make a donation in honor of someone you care about.
You can also take comfort in knowing that 100 percent of your contribution goes to CFCA projects to benefit those assisted by the fund you select.
†We hope you enjoy your CFCA Christmas†gift-giving experience.
