Meet Reinel

This is Reinel from Bocachica. He's been one of our volunteers at the mission since he was little and he was in our Child Sponsorship Program through high school graduation. Now Reinel is a recipient of our scholarship program and he is studying nursing. Even though the scholarship he has received covers the costs of his school fees, books and uniforms, he is still responsible for some of his own expenses, like transportation. Unfortunately the financial situation of Reinel's family is very critical and he has not been able to meet these expenses. We at the mission have helped make ends meet so far but in order for Reinel to continue studying we urgently need to find some additional sponsors to help cover these costs. He has to travel round trip to Cartagena by boat each day, and then once he is there he has to take two buses plus he needs to get at least a small bite to eat during the day. Ideally he needs $5 USD per day, 5 days a week...this comes to about $100 USD a month. I know a lot of you who have come to Bocachica know Reinel and we wanted to let you know of this need...if any of you would like to sponsor Reinel so he can further his education, please contact us so we can give you the details! THANK YOU!!
