Children Sponsored by Atkinson Family Practice
Through Partners in Development, Atkinson Family Practice is once again sponsoring a little girl, Dolores, and her family in Guatemala. Dolores is 5 years old and has one older brother and one older sister. She lives with her siblings and her parents in a one room wooden shack with a tin roof and a dirt floor. They have electricity, but no running water. Her father works as a day laborer but only earns about $28 each week to support the family of 5. Early in her life, the PID doctor diagnosed Dolores with severe malnutrition but she is better now. However, she just lost a long-term sponsor and needs a new one to continue her growth. Dolores enjoys playing “kitchen” and “helping” her mother wash the dishes. The family eats tortillas for each meal with beans, eggs or rice.
Yoselin Natalia Juarez Valdez has been sponsored by AFP for 12 years! She is a student in Guatemala.
