Fernando was born to a community care program member who is 16 years old and comes from an impoverished family. He resides with his disabled grandfather, mother and her two siblings. His grandfather, a disabled fisherman, has limitations in his ability to walk, get around, and therefore provide for the family.  We continue to partner with this family to provide essential needs for Fernando and his family and educational opportunities for his mother and her two siblings.
