    Glissy is a young Brazilian girl who lives with her mother and stepfather, Ana and Marcos, in a slum area on the outskirts of the city of Fortaleza. This is an area with groups of families particularly vulnerable, marked by poverty, by the lack of environmental sanitation, and by high risks of conflict and violence. Their simple home, which is rented, has brick walls, rough cement floors and a clay-tiled roof. Marcos works as a baker and his earnings are far from enough to meet even the most basic needs of his family. Glissy is friendly, sweet and intelligent. She loves playing house and with dolls in the company of other girls her age. She has a dog she is passionately fond of. Glissy is considered to have good health, in spite of the poor living conditions and diet. She attends a local public elementary school and her favorite subject is math. Her wish is to be a doctor when she grows up. As you can see, this is a very needy family, and your support will give them the opportunity to have a better life and a better future.
