The sponsor of Diego Armando is Heather McLaughlin of Texas.
“I began sponsoring Diego when he was featured in a Children International slide-show. The slide-show was set up in order to find sponsors for children with special health needs.
Diego is going through a tough time in his life right now. Recently, both of his parents passed away and Diego has many moments of sadness and feelings of loss.
His aunt became his caregiver after his parents passed away. She continues to do all that she can for him, not just physically (meeting his needs of food, medicine, clothes and care), but, also caring for his emotional and mental state. In most of Diego’s letters, he tells me that he misses his parents immensely, but his aunt helps him to move on.
Diego’s aunt needs help to become more stable with the business that she started. Once she is able to pay off the debt she owes, she will be able to provide more for Diego. Diego needs Pediasure to keep his weight (calories) and health in good condition. This is not something that his aunt can currently provide him, in addition to help with school fees.”
