Kenedy is a young Brazilian boy who lives with his maternal grandmother, Maria; two aunts, and an uncle, in a rural community located in the southwestern part of the state of Ceara. Their simple home, which is self-built, has brick walls, rough cement floors and a clay-tiled roof. It has rudimentary sanitary facilities. Electricity is available. The mother is deceased. The father has abandoned the home. Maria receives a small benefit from the federal government, which is hardly enough to meet basic needs. The per capita family income is about US$ 10.00 per month. They are of the Catholic faith and face hardships to survive. Kenedy is a smart and observant child. He runs messages for his grandma. He likes playing with balls and toy cars, and just running around. He is fond of animals, especially dogs and cats. Kenedy is considered to have good health, in spite of the poor living conditions and diet. He attends kindergarten and loves painting and coloring. Your support will enable Kenedy and his family to have access to important projects in the areas of health, education, nutrition and recreation.
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.
