Provide Compassionate Aid & Ministry to struggling mothers in Latin America.
May is the month of Mother's Day, but it is difficult for many mothers of Icthus kids to celebrate right now. Covid19 is spiking even worse in Latin America. Many families need food, and their children need ministry!
Poor families are suffering from hunger! The poverty level is rising. Parents of Icthus children have lost their jobs.
Would you help one or more struggling mothers by providing compassionate aid and ministry for their children?
With your gift, you can provide one or more kids with the Icthus ministry of activities and learning throughout the whole year. You'll also be helping to provide an impoverished family with aid, such as food. You may give any amount.
$25=½ family $50=1 family $75=1 1/2 families
$100=2 families $150=3 families $200=4 families
Or you may give by PayPal.

You can help kids like Diego (left) from Colombia have a whole year of Icthus for so little.
Doing this will mean that he and others will get weekly programs of activies and learning opportunities. Right now, because of COVID-19, kids need a friend like you to receive the Icthus en Casa (at home) program. Every week guides from a local church will be in contact with him and others of his group who are isolated to give them materials, encouragement, and help.
Children need ministry to help them grow mentally, socially, and spiritually. They need to know that God loves them. They need guidance to learn to love the Lord and to love others as themselves. Would you help provide that?
Diego is from a poor rural community. His family struggles financially because of the pandemic. He doesn't have a computer so he needs Icthus guides to visit him and bring program materials. For kids in larger towns where there is accesss to cell phone service and internet they can receive weekly videos and materias and even online meetings. But they Icthus Amigo like you to help them.
In the future when churches begin to open up, kids will be able to have regular meetings, games, do service projects, and have other activities.
Kids will have all this if they someone helps them to receive Icthus. Select a donation button above.
