Semilla de Esperansa

Female | Age: 13 | Birthdate: October 1, 2008

Because her mother works, Yasleidiz lives with her grandparents in this poor community of Las Brisas del Este. Her mother spends her weekends with Yasleidiz. At home, Yasleidiz helps by washing dishes, cleaning and running errands. The typical home is two rooms made of scrap tin or wood. There is no running water, no paved roads and very few jobs. Yasleidiz helps to collect rain water from the roof for cleaning and washing. She lives in an environment where alcoholism, drugs and teen pregnancy are common social issues. Your sponsorship will make it possible for Yasleidiz to attend the Learning Center, where she will receive help with her education, medical and dental care. Yasleidiz attends church. She enjoys reading and playing with her cousins. Please remember her in your prayers. Your love and support will help Yasleidiz receive the assistance she needs to develop to her full potential.

Brisas del Este is a squatter community outside of Santo Domingo. Limited access to clean water and electricity, leaves many children vulnerable to malnourishment and parasites. To combat these circumstances, VisionTrust runs an after-school program. Children come to receive tutoring, food, medical care and to hear the message of Jesus Christ.
