This is Yamira and her beautiful two-year old son, Bryan.

Recently, Bryan was diagnosed with a hernia. Thanks to the help of the Jerico CSP, Bryan was able to receive a successful surgery. The supportive community proved invaluable to Yamira.

"I’m deeply grateful to the CSP and to Compassion International for the work they are doing, and for giving me the opportunity to be benefited by this program."
