Walter Experiences Love and a Miracle

Walter Simón and his family have attended “Valley of Blessing” Baptist Church (where our Cuba children’s program is located) in El Cobre, Cuba for over 17 years.

Walter’s two children, one four years old and the other one of three years old, really like vegetables. 

While in the church with his children and the pastor, they saw the garden, where the vegetables grow vigorously. Both children exclaimed; “Lettuce, lettuce, Daddy!” And they asked their father; “When will we eat lettuce, Daddy?” The church pastor, knowing the critical food situation in the area, gave them a bundle of lettuce and two squashes. 

Walter expressed gratitude to the Lord and to the pastor. He told the pastor that that afternoon he had nothing for dinner at home. He considered that was a miracle from God. To which the pastor responded that thanks to Forward Edge, the church had managed to grow those vegetables and that it was a pleasure to be able to share with them.

Transform a Child's Life Through Sponsorship

Ka wula (hello), my name is Fatima

  • location


  • 15 yrs. old


Entered the program: March 2023

Fatima lives with her mother in a one-bedroom house built with mud and roofed with thatch. The community has access to electricity and potable water but Fatima’s mother cannot afford to pay for it, so they are not connected to these services. There is lack of good sanitation in the community which poses a health hazard.

Fatima’s family is Muslim. Her father is deceased and her mother sells red pepper in the local market but barely earns a dollar a day. Keeping Fatima in school is challenging and, without assistance, her ability to continue would be affected.

Sponsorship Level What's this?

Three $38 sponsorships are needed to cover the complete holistic care of one child. Cover one, two, or three sponsorships.
