Nelson Velasquez

Nelson is responsible for caring for his three younger sisters. His father is often away driving working as a street vendor for a living, while his mother is cleaning houses as a maid. His main prayer is that God will protect everyone in his family. Nelson is quite the active young man; he loves to run around and exercise. He is a good student and loves learning about sociology. Perhaps that will come in handy when he becomes a doctor in the future. Sponsorship is an awesome opportunity to change a life. Your letters and support will bring a sense of value and show love to him that he will treasure for a lifetime! Prayerfully consider sponsoring Nelson.

Los Pinos


Los Pinos (The Pines) is a squatter's town on the outskirts of the capital city of Tegucigalpa. It was created by the unfulfilled dreams of thousands who migrated to the city hoping for a better way of life, only to find that the city could be just as unforgiving and desolate as the rural wilderness they had hoped to escape. Unemployment, lack of basic services, malnutrition, and overpopulation combine to foster a difficult environment in which to raise children. Domestic and gang violence along with substance and sexual abuse are destroying the fragile family unit and fueling the dangerous immigration march to the north.

HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
All it takes is $39 a month to make a huge impact in this child's life! Your support goes directly to help provide for and empower them. Sponsoring a child will also impact your life!

GIVING HOPE IS SIMPLE, YET EFFECTIVE

Through CarePoints in local communities, Children's Cup provides the necessities and skills needed to thrive, but most of all we provide children the opportunity to learn about Christ.

Through generous sponsorship, you're providing hope and encouragement, but most importantly you're letting these children know their life has value and that they are loved. Thank you!
