Obed Quispe Mendez
Primitiva Learning Center
Male | Age: 4 | Birthdate: November 26, 2018
Obed lives in the impoverished area of Ayacucho, Peru where living conditions are often very difficult. The homes in this community are usually constructed from mud or cement. Because many of the parents are seasonal farm workers, children are often left alone for long periods of time. Alcoholism, domestic violence and witchcraft are all social challenges prevalent in this community. Your sponsorship will make it possible for Obed to attend the Learning Center where he will receive tutoring, food, and basic dental and medical care. He will hear Bible stories and learn Bible verses in a warm and loving environment. When Obed is not assisting with household chores, he enjoys playing soccer and other group games with his friends. Please remember Obed in your prayers. Your love and support will help Obed receive the assistance he needs as he learns to live for God and love others, because he is worth more than the poverty he was born into.
More about Primitiva Learning Center...
Ayacucho has a history of violence that has left the people’s hearts full of anger as they struggle daily against poverty. The Quechua people are seasonal farmers, earning mere dollars a day. Often, this means children are left unsupervised late into the night, or for weeks at a time, while their parents work on farms. VisionTrust’s local heroes in Ayacucho aim to share the love of Jesus by providing a safe and nurturing environment at the Learning Center for these vulnerable children.
