The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bread and rice. Common health problems in this area include flu, bronchitis, diarrhea and malnutrition. Most adults in Colonia Guadalupe, calle el Barro are unemployed but some work on plantations and earn the equivalent of $90 per month. This community needs employment opportunities, vocational workshops, a soccer field and a park.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Sembrando la semilla Student Center to provide Cesar with Bible studies, nutritious snacks, medical, dental and eye checkups, birthday celebrations, tutoring, sport uniforms and raincoats. Seventy percent of children in this project do not attend school is it is not required before the age of seven in El Salvador. The center staff will also provide meetings and workshops for the parents or guardians of Cesar.
Most Salvadorans live in the country's subtropical central region of valleys and plateaus. A hot coastal plain is in the south and the north is mountainous. Nearly all the land is farmed; coffee is grown in the mountains.

Ninety percent of El Salvador's population is of mixed Indian and Spanish descent; about 60 percent live in urban areas. Although a few Indians have retained many of their old customs and traditions, most people have adopted the Spanish language and culture. Fifty-seven percent of Salvadorans are Catholic but there is extensive activity by Protestant groups and over twenty-one percent are Protestants. Compassion works in the central, southern and western regions of the country.

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. Spain claimed the country in 1525. Almost 300 years later, El Salvador declared its independence and, after a brief union with Mexico, joined four other Central American countries to form a federation. When this union ended in 1838, El Salvador became a republic. The country experienced a period of increasing unrest during the 1970s that culminated in a civil war in the 1980s. In 1992, a peace agreement was reached.
