Providing Mercy in Marcelina’s Honor

Silentimages 13057The home that Marcelina shared with her husband, Braulio, was long a place of warm hospitality. Even as she suffered from the chronic pain that accompanied her old age, and though Braulio is blind, everyone who spent time with them experienced kindness, friendship, and generosity.

When Marcelina passed away in 2014, we knew we had to do something to commemorate her legacy. We extend our mercy outreach in her honor.

With your help, those needs will be met with the love of Jesus. A new story will be written – one of hope, new beginnings, and turning points. The Community Relief Fund will respond with compassion to extreme needs, including:

  • Medical services (surgeries, cancer treatment, prescriptions, etc) through Janina and Blanqui’s “Clinic in Backpack”
  • Benevolence through “Tita’s Box.”
  • Nutrition supplements and Ensure for the elderly and small children
  • Adult diapers and other medical supplies for the bedridden
  • Home repairs after storms and mudslides or when children are at high risk.
