    Joel is a young Brazilian boy who lives with his parents, Egilson and Maria, and with two brothers and a sister, in a small rural village located in the interior of the state of Ceara, which is a hot and remote region. Their simple home, which is self-built, has brick walls, rough cement floors and a clay-tiled roof. It has rudimentary sanitary facilities. Egilson does some odd jobs as a day laborer in agriculture when available (he is unemployed at this time) and Maria decorates hammocks at home; the combined income, however, is far from enough to meet even the most basic needs of the family. The per capita family income is about US$ 25.00 per month. They are of the Catholic faith and face hardships to survive. Joel is sweet and shy. He likes playing with ball and toy cars. He has a dog he is fond of. Joel is considered to have good health, in spite of the poor living conditions and diet. He attends a local public elementary school where he is making good progress. The family is needy and your support will enable Joel and his family to have access to important projects in the areas of health, education, nutrition and recreation.
