During the rainy season in Santa Maria Ostuma many mosquitoes invade the area, increasing the threat for dengue fever.

Maria Elena and her son Lisandro received a mosquito net for the baby’s cradle. This will protect him from mosquitos and the threat of dengue fever.

Maria Elena also receives instruction on caring for Lisandro and is encouraged to attend Bible studies with other local moms.
