WE DON’T DO PROJECTS – WE DO MISSIONS
Two months ago, Abdiel Sosa and Ariel Pavon (President and VP of Prints of Hope International) had the opportunity to visit Cucuta, which is the border between Colombia and Venezuela. As they traveled to bridges that connect each country, they could see the thousands of Venezuela’s crossing the border. Some were crossing the border to leave the country with only a few belongings they had left. Others to find food or medications, and a few others to sell anything they could as a re-sale. Currently, most people are making a dollar or less per day.
You can see the desperation of the families, especially those that had little children. The lack of food, medications, hygiene items, hunger, and death is all real.
For these reasons, Prints of Hope International (POH) is taking on this mission. We are set to provide much needed medical attention, distribution of medication, food, hygiene items, clothing, and shoes.
At POH, we believe in the value of education and the power that gives to a child in need. POH has taken on the challenge, as a step in faith, in sponsoring 50 children to continue their education in Venezuela. These are children from families that have no possible means to have their child in school.
“All I could think was about my children, what if that was my family in that situation.”
