Family in Focus

Meet Simone Theophile.

Simone became a single mother after her husband died in the earthquake, and now she provides for her three children by working as a tailor, making beautiful dresses for her neighbors, family, and friends.  They are thankful to have a place to call home.

Featured Way to Give

Give the gift of health.

Sister Rose surveyed the families in Chiltiupán, El Salvador and found that 300 do not have a latrine or restroom. Without sanitation, contaminated food and water can lead to parasites, hepatitis, and many other diseases.  Just $450 provides a latrine for a family and better health for the whole community.
