Felomena is a 97 year-old woman living in Lima with one of her sons. Although she has 7 children, only one is willing to help care for her. Her home is falling apart, and she sleeps on an old mattress. Although she is old, speaks only Quechua, and is in need of care, she still works to recycle plastic and metal. Sadly, she does not have anyone to cook for her. She goes to the feeding center when she can, but she is not always able to make the trek.
The Valor team visited her on their recent trip and blessed Felomena with a new mattress. When she received this gift, she cried of joy and gratefulness. Larry and the team are hoping to bless her with a new home in the coming months as hers has holes in the roof, and it is currently winter in Peru.
As Luis (“Pocho”) puts it, “to help a lady in this situation is to be close to God’s heart.” Please keep this beautiful child of God in your prayers.
