Recovery Program

Pobres de Jesus Cristo is dedicated to serving the underprivileged through various ministries living a modest life alongside those in need and relying on God’s provision. Their focus is on providing assistance to impoverished elderly individuals who have been deserted by their families as well as malnourished children. With your contributions a center can be built that offers meals and care three times a week along with medicine for the elderly and nutritional aid and milk for children.
