A family transformed through CFCA’s work in El Salvador

We have two new stories on our website, hopeforafamily.org. Even though they focus on two people – Santiago and his son, Cesar – they are all about one incredible family.

Santiago's family

Santiago and his family

Santiago, from El Salvador, credits CFCA sponsorship with giving his family a support network of local CFCA staff, sponsors for his children and other families in the CFCA program.

“I think the best gift that I could have received from God is to have a group of people who support me,” he said.

His oldest son, Cesar, is planning to study accounting and English. He’s a CFCA scholar and has received educational assistance, clothing and school supplies.

“Without CFCA, my parents could not cover these needs and I would have to drop out of school and go out and work to help my parents bring up my siblings,” Cesar said. “This is a real impact on my family and on my life.”

In the future, Cesar hopes to start a family, own a home and buy a car.
