Empty Pots. Empty Stomachs.

Not long ago, Jorge’s dad injured his back in a motorcycle accident in El Salvador. 

“The pain was terrible,” recalled Tony. “It kept me from working for a long time.”

Tony is a father of three. Providing for his wife and children had always been his priority until the accident.

“It’s hard because you expect to support your kids,” added Tony. “you expect to meet their needs. It’s not easy. It’s not easy.”

Meanwhile 8-year-old Jorge did what he could to help by taking care of a few chickens. He seemed to have a knack for it.

Unfortunately, the medical bills soon exhausted the family’s savings and their debt increased. Then their small corn crop also failed. 

One day Jorge went from pot to pot looking to see what was for dinner. But all the pots were empty. That’s when he remembered a saying his dad taught him.

“'Everyone on the bed, or everyone on the floor,’” said Jorge. “It means we all eat or none of us eats. So, we went hungry.”

That’s when Operation Blessing learned about the family’s needs.

We provided Tony with a new business selling fresh coconut milk. With the first load of coconuts and a bicycle cart we built for him he earned over $100. He’s already grown the business to nearly $200 a week!

Then we gave Jorge 50 chickens to start a poultry business.

Jorge says, "When Operation Blessing gave us the chicken business, I went out and collected the eggs and mom helped me to sell them. Then I bought more chickens!"

Jorge has raised and sold hundreds of chickens over the past year!

“I gave all the money to mom,” he said. 

Jorge has even thought about why this happened to his family?

“I think maybe God was testing us. After we passed, He sent us the help we needed. Thank God YOU came to help us!"
