Maria is a 76-year-old elderly woman who became a disciple 12 years ago and lives with her 54-year-old daughter Carla. Carla became a disciple four years ago. Maria and Carla have been dealing with illnesses and difficult situations, which have gotten worse since Carla lost her job, as she was the family's sole financial provider.

Carla is unable to find work due to severe Fibromyalgia. Because of the pandemic, their situation worsened, and their debts increased due to the cost of medicines, rent, food, and government fees.

At this moment, they are surviving solely on Mrs. Maria's meager pension and the assistance of their sons. They will, however, need assistance for at least six months. She would greatly appreciate any support that ETF can provide.
