Best Gift for 2021
The best gift for a child in Latin America could be a year of Icthus ministry; and for an impoverished family, it could be food and other compassionate aid.
Life has been very challenging for many children and families in Latin America. You can help to make it better by giving the best gift.
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 impoverished family with aid, such as food.
Any amount will help. For example, $50 can help provide Icthus ministry to a child for a year and compassionate aid to a poor family.
ICTHUS EN CASA MINISTRY
Provide children like Diego (left) of Colombia with the Icthus en Casa program (Icthus at Home).
Icthus en Casa was developed to help children and youth during this pandemic. Children need ministry to to be sure that God loves them, to learn to love God and love others as themselves, and to grow mentally, socially, and spiritually.
Children from poorer families will also get a Learning Kit with tools like pencils, paper, eraser, and crayons.
Your gift of $15 will give Icthus to one child through the whole year.
Icthus for a year for 2 kids - $30 4 kids = 60 8 kids - $120 10 kids = $150
