Israel, Genesis and Tamara are three children whose already tough lives were compounded with an eye condition called Strabismus. The condition does not go away on it’s own, but it is repairable with surgery.
Two months ago, these children and their families had never dreamed they would be blessed with financial help for the surgery, transportation to the hospital, medicines and follow up care. Today they are so grateful for the help they are receiving and for the love that has been shared with them from this family in the U.S.
Al’s family has been blown away by the support that has come in (over $7,000 to date) and would like to continue to help children in Nicaragua who need surgeries through the “Al Kotchi Memorial Fund.” If you would like to make a gift in Al’s honor, please click here and simply include “Al Kotchi Memorial Fund” in the order notes of the donation page.
You can see the photos below of Israel’s journey and we will update with photos from Genesis and Tamara as they become available.
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”
– Matthew 18: 3-5 NIV
