The greatest community needs in Cusuna today are the need for good nutrition and care for numerous orphaned children. In the past we have seen 4 out of 5 children daily go without protein in their diet. This causes serious growth deficiencies. We have also seen seven and eight year old children carrying their younger siblings to church and around the village.
We have been working on installing sustainable, aquaponic food production systems in order to serve the communities as hubs of information and accessibility to a renewable food source.
A few years ago, Travis and Gina Moffitt sat in Pastor Nahun and Edeña’s home sharing our love and appreciation for one another. Edeña, usually quiet in group settings, shared these words through her tears, “Please don’t forget to come back.” I will never forget her heart-felt plea. Connect Global is committed to seeing these plans become a reality.
We are committed to answering Edeña’s request.
