I will start by giving you thanks for taking the time to read my update. I walk for forty-five minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Ofelia Lucrecia. I am 11 years old and my birthday was in March. I did not continue with my studies for lack of money. I only attended second grade last year. I am working as a maid. I do not earn much money but I contribute with a little money for the home expenses.
The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My father works as a day laborer three days per week and he covers the expenses. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. My parents grow herbs for selling. We are members of the Catholic Church. I am grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.
Thinking of you!
