Antonia is a young Brazilian girl who lives with her parents, Ivanir and Tatiana, in a rural community in the interior of the state of Ceara. Their simple home has brick walls, rough cement floors and a clay-tiled roof. It is rented and has rudimentary sanitary facilities (cesspit). There is no sewerage system in the area. Electricity is available. Both the parents work as day laborers in agriculture; 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$ 30.00 per month. The family is Catholic and their native language is Portuguese. Antonia is active and observant. She likes playing with balls and dolls, and just running around. She is fond of animals, especially dogs and cats. Antonia is considered to have good health, in spite of the poor living conditions and diet. She is still too young to attend school. The family needs your support which will be fundamental for the development of this needy child.
It’s a great way to create a bond between someone who’s
special to you and a child who will welcome his or her friendship and support.
