Kleberson is a young Brazilian boy who lives with his mother, Maria Jaciele, and with one younger sister, in a small rural community about 350 miles south of Fortaleza. Their simple home has brick walls, rough cement floors and a clay-tiled roof. It is self-built and the sanitary facilities are rudimentary (cesspit). There is no sewerage system in the area. The father has abandoned the home and has not been providing any type of financial support for his children. Maria Jaciele is unemployed at this time. The family receives a small family allowance from the federal government. The per capita family income is about US$ 20.00 per month. They are of the Catholic faith and face hardships to survive. Kleberson is cheerful and communicative. He runs small errands for his mom. He likes playing with his very simple toys like plastic balls and cars. He has a dog he is fond of. Kleberson is considered to have good health, in spite of the poor living conditions and diet. He attends nursery school and loves painting and coloring. 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.
