Sponsoring a child has been a great experience for our family. Knowing a small amount each month can go so far to help a child across the world is a wonderful thing. My children love knowing they have another "sister " in another country. Our sponsored child is always in our prayers and thoughts. It has been a blessing for our family, and we are happy to be a part of this program.

Our family has been sponsoring children from Prodein for years. We are incredibly blessed to have two healthy children and a wonderful family! We love giving to others since God has blessed us tremendously. We receive letters and photos from our child and it is as if she is a part of our family who just happens to live in another country. It is a blessing to be able to helping children in this way!

In 1996 we sponsored a boy for the first time and to this day, I thank God for the lessons learned by my entire family from that small act.
Last year, I was thinking about all the blessings that we, as a family, have received. We have 5 wonderful children, 4 girls, one boy and 12 grandchildren, and so... I felt the urge to thank God in a very special way for his kindness toward us… and I decided once again to sponsor a child, except that this time it would be 4 children.
To sponsor children is a wonderful way to teach the family. About sharing, about helping those in need… but perhaps most important is the abundant graces our Lord spread among us.

In 2013 I became a volunteer of Prodein Non-Profit, Inc. I could see up close how the work is done, how the help they receive gets to the destination needed due to their tireless work. While the Prodein missionaires deal with every kind of infirmity either from the body or from the soul, they do not give up until they complete their work. And this is extended to everyone they meet. Everything they receive goes to the poor, including their time. No detail is too small for Prodein team, everything is measured, talked, consulted and finally executed with happiness, entusiasm, and especially responsibility hard to see these days.There seems to be an invisible bond that unites these tireless and faithful workers of Prodein. I have learned and am learning how to live thinking of others first. This is one lesson that no one can teach by words alone, it takes action and faith, example and perseverance such as Prodein’s. And especially trusting that the Lord and our Blessed Virgin Mary is with us every step of the way.

I’ve been a volunteer with Prodein Non-Profit Inc. since 2006 and was recently blessed with the opportunity to visit some of the missionary communities they help in Peru. I was able to see first hand the role they play in developing local communities from providing needed daily nutrition, affordable education, engaging in cultivation, to teaching and making this development possible under God’s words. This trip clearly reflected their mission - promoting the integral development of man and woman according to the principles contained in the gospel. This was a very rewarding experience. It helped me value basic things I take for granted such as food, clean water, education, etc. Even so, these poor communities were very welcoming and carried smiles on their faces. Their smiles and gratitude gave me more than we gave them. I feel privileged to be a part of such a caring and well run organization, and to play a small part towards a great cause.

I have been a volunteer for the Campaign Against Hunger for 30 years. I have been able to participate in the New York and New Jersey campaigns. All while enduring intense cold weather, snow, rain or high heat and sometimes while suffering health issues.
Sometimes we encounter people who don’t believe what we do is in order to help the Missions, so they call us bad names or make fun of us, but that does not discourage me. I don’t care about what they might think, I know I am not deceiving people, I am a volunteer in a beautiful organization. I offer all I have to give because I know the organization well, and I met Father Rodrigo Molina. I am certain of the good we do and who we work and continue doing this for.
I remember one day a person walked by who could, but did not want to help us. Then, a very poor lady walked by and told me: “I don’t have much money, I have four children, that’s why I can only give you one dollar, if had more, I would give it to you..."
When you are in need and someone offers to help you, you’re so grateful! Even if it’s just a little, but since it’s given to you with so much love, it gives you great joy. Then I think that people who receive this help are also going to receive a great joy. Also, I think that the people who we work to benefit will also be moved and will help others. The charity is passed on.
I think that if you have time and good will and you can, why not help those who are in need? We could do so much more with the help of more volunteers.

I was born in Lima, Peru. I became acquainted with PRODEIN 25 years ago. Back then I knew about the existence of PRODEIN and all the good they did for the poor, those in need and those who have nothing. So my mother and I started sponsoring a child from Cusco.
I started helping out as a volunteer. I realized that working with PRODEIN was very fulfilling, I felt useful.
I am happy to keep working with the organization, whether it is with a monthly fee, or as a volunteer in the Campaign Against Hunger.
I was in Cusco in 2013 and spent 15 wonderful days with the missions supported by PRODEIN NON-PROFIT. I’ve seen how much it has grown and the good it does for others. I was able to confirm once again that the donations truly do reach their destination, that is, the Missions. They yield so much fruit! And above all, they work with so much love.
