Mateo lives with his parents in Los Verdes, where the living conditions are very difficult. The home in which Mateo lives, has wood walls, a cement floor and a tin roof.

They live in an environment where respiratory problems are a common result of the use of firewood in indoor cooking. Your sponsorship will make it possible for Mateo to attend the Learning Center where he will receive tutoring, food and learn of Jesus love for him. Mateo likes play soccer and he is learning to play the drums. Please remember him in your prayers. Your love and support will help Mateo receive the assistance he needs to develop to his full potential.
