Eight-year-old Eddy lives with his mother and three brothers in a small cement house in Costa Rica. Eddy’s father has been in prison for two years, and the family is having trouble getting by without him. Over 20 percent of people in Costa Rica live below the poverty line, and prisoners’ children like Eddy are desperately in need of a helping hand. As Eddy’s sponsor, you’ll help provide nutritious food, healthcare, and an opportunity to learn about God’s love. He is a strong swimmer for a second grader, and your support will only help him get stronger as he continues through school to learn the skills he needs to forge a path out of poverty.
