La Vida Jefferson and sister


Jefferson and his sister are siblings from a very young mother.  The grandmother looks after the kids since  they were babies. She is a hard working woman, in charge of a community diner at Juan Velasco. She has no money for her grandchildren’s education.

A monthly donation of £20 will ensure a child like Jefferson has a quality education at Vila Maria, Peru.
