Meet Jose Daniel.

In a previous post about Compassion Canada, I have told you who where our sponsored kids and shared about the fact that our son Alexandre was waiting for his correspondence child packet to arrive.
Well it arrived last week.    And here’s Jose Daniel from El Salvador.

Jose makes his home with his father and mother.  Running errands is his household duty.  His father is employed and his mother maintains the home.   There are 2 children in the family.   For fun, Jose enjoys playing with cars, singing and running.  He attends church activities and Bible class regularly and is in kindergarten where his performance is average.
Jose lives on the plains located north of San Salvador.  It is the home of approximately 1,500 residents.  Typical houses are constructed of cement.   The population is comprised of Mestizos and the most common spoken language is Spanish.
8-23-2010 7;46;47 AM The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bread and rice.  Common health problems in this area include respiratory disorders and stomach infections.   Most adults in the community are unemployed but some work in domestic services and earn the equivalent of $144 per month.   This community has water and electricity but needs literacy training, health services and employment opportunities.
Alexandre has already send a card to Jose and is looking forward to get to know him.
