The strength and perseverance of a mother in raising her children while fulfilling her work responsibilities are truly admirable. A touching example of this is the story of Valesska, a Venezuelan woman who migrated to Ecuador four years ago with her son Fernando, who is now five years old.

Valesska makes a living by selling homemade ice cream, prepared with her own hands, aboard the buses that pass through her neighborhood. However, her income is not sufficient to cover all the basic needs of her family, such as food, health, housing, and education.

In October, she sought help from Pan de Vida. After a conversation about her situation and getting to know her family a bit more, a visit was made to her home, where the difficult living conditions they were facing became apparent.

Pan de Vida provided food kits and clothing, and Valesska and Fernando were also included in the health fair held in December. Since then, they have been receiving medical follow-up, especially because Fernando needs therapy for his language problems, but unfortunately, they do not have the necessary resources to access this service.

For Valesska and Fernando, Pan de Vida’s intervention not only represents tangible support but also hope and a manifestation of God’s love. Faith plays a fundamental role in overcoming challenges, and Pan de Vida is committed to nurturing this faith through its hot meal program, sharing the word of God through biblical messages that can be a source of strength for them on their journey.

As Isaiah 41:10 says: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
