Dilson Manuel Rivera is not the same little boy we met in the village of San Agustin Arriba five years ago. When we first encountered Dilson he was malnourished and in need of immediate assistance.
HOI’s medical team found Dilson in poor condition during an exploratory visit in 2011. With the support and commitment of his parents, Geovany and Brenda, Dilson began a nutrition regimen that would help him recover from his emaciated state. His parents accepted HOI’s invitation and joined our family garden program to learn how to grow vegetables and prepare balanced meals.
Through the five-year partnership between HOI and Dilson’s family, Dilson has grown healthy and strong. He is now nine years old and headed to the 4th grade. His parents continue to utilize the skills they acquired and are still growing healthy, nutritious food for the entire family.
Your partnership with HOI helps make life-changing opportunities, like Dilson’s, a reality for others. Your support is extremely important because it ensures that HOI’s programs continue to impact and change lives in Honduras and Nicaragua every day.
Please consider giving $50 or more to help us reach our goal of raising $40,000 by the end of year. You are a vital part of this ministry and we hope you will continue to join us in transforming lives.
