MISSION CAPSULE: When Cristina Flete gave birth to her first baby, she wasn’t aware of how crucial exclusive breastfeeding and developmental activities could be to her child’s long-term health. When her second child was born, Christina attended a workshop facilitated by PWS&D’s local partner in Nicaragua. With other mothers, Cristina learned the importance of breastmilk for a child’s developing brain and how to create materials to stimulate her child’s mind. Additionally, culinary classes empower parents with tools to help with their families’ overall health. With PWS&D support, families are combating malnutrition and chronic illness, giving their babies the best chance for a future of good health.

“In the name of Jesus Christ, who was never in a hurry, we pray Oh God, that you will slow us down, for we know that we live too fast. With all of eternity before us, make us take the time to live – time to get acquainted with you, time to enjoy your blessings and time to know each other.” Peter Marshall
