The regional diet consists of maize, fish, beef, plantains, cassava, bananas and rice. Common health problems in this area include skin infections, influenza, pneumonia and asthma. Most adults in Arjona Bolivar are unemployed but some work as street vendors and earn the equivalent of $172 per month. The community needs basic utilities service, proper housing, employment opportunities, pre- and primary schools and the Gospel.
Your sponsorship allows the staff of El Buen Samaritano Student Center to provide your sponsored child with Bible teaching, health and hygiene education, vaccinations, sports, birthday celebrations, life skills training. The center staff will also provide counseling and parents' school for the parents or guardians of your sponsored child.
