Update from Juan, Care2 Sponsored Child

We’ve recently received an update from Juan. Juan is one of the 16 children that Care2 members sponsor by regularly clicking on the Care2 Click to Donate pages.Our members daily clicks have provided Juan new clothing, shoes, healthcare and educational support since November, 2007!

Update from Juan

Dear Sponsors,
I am very happy to write you and to say hi again. I hope you and your family are doing healthy. I tell you that I am enjoying good health with my family. I tell you that September 15th was very happy and I played ball with my friends. My favorite subject is math because I like numbers and to subtract and to add and all about Math. I went to bring the torch with my school to a place named Santa Lucia, it was very fun and I spent time with my teachers, we had fun. I want to say thank you for the help you have given me, thanks because I receive medical checkup and easter gifts and others. I say good bye and I hope to write you soon. God bless you forever.

With much love,
Juan

Update from Children International

Age / Health
Juan turned 11 years old on his last birthday, which was in July. The last time he was measured and weighed, he had grown to 4 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 77 pounds.

School / Activities
Juan attends school. According to Juan, his favorite subjects are art and math.

Juan loves to spend his free time engaged in activities like playing soccer or with toys and cars. His hobby or talent is painting.

Home Life
Juan lives with his relatives, including his mother Mary. While the household income varies depending on the availability of work, they usually average about $130 a month.

The family lives in a house, which is constructed of concrete walls, concrete flooring and a corrugated metal roof. His house has a bedroom and a kitchen. Juan sleeps in a bed. Cooking facilities consist of an open fire. Electricity is available but use is regulated. The sanitary facility is a latrine. The family has access to clean water through a neighbor’s faucet.

While Guatemala City’s tourist zone rivals those of large cities around the globe, crowded slums struggling with gangs, drugs and violence lie just outside the tourist zone. Children International community centers in Guatemala City offer thousands of poor children and youth a safe environment where they can participate in positive activities that increase their confidence, knowledge and likelihood of eventually escaping poverty.

Thankfully, sponsorship is helping Juan by monitoring his health and providing him with the essentials he needs, such as:
New clothing and shoes
Basic health care, dental care and medicine
Educational support, like school uniforms and supplies
-
A big thank you to the Care2 members that have been clicking daily and providing children like Juan the support they need.
