Cristina lives in Mexico with her husband. The property where they live with their animals is their own piece of paradise. A paradise threatened with the COVID-19 pandemic in Mexico. Cristina and her husband earned income by opening their own small store to the community, selling sweet and savory snacks. But when the COVID-19 pandemic hit Mexico, mass quarantine mandates significantly impacted their financial lives. Income was scarce and competing stores began opening up around the community as people struggled to make ends meet. Additionally there were very few buyers or sellers due to the economic impact of COVID-19 in Mexico. On top of that, Cristina’s sheep was stolen from her barn one night, a sheep she planned to breed and use for income. Cristina was feeling very frustrated and fearful of what the future held.
But thanks to generous partners like YOU, Operation Blessing heard of Cristina’s situation and swiftly responded! OB Mexico delivered bags of rice, beans, oil and more right to her front door. You provided these goods along with supplies for Cristina and her husband to begin growing their own garden, creating sustainability for the years ahead. Thank you for your kindness! Your gifts and prayer support will be multiplied as Cristina is sustained by your generosity.
