DescriptionBanana plantations are common in Changuinola, Panama. So is poverty and children falling behind in school. Missionary Ingrid Roldán-Román, along with the Centro Teológico Bautista de Caribe Panameño (Panamanian Theological Center of the Caribbean), provides educational classes and tutoring to help the children keep up with their peers. Ingrid also has a heart for the new mothers. Thanks to White Cross, baby layettes provide a daily witness of God’s love and care. It is anticipated this project will give the children of Changuinola the study skills and encouragement they need to keep up with their peers and that it will assist new mothers by providing some necessities for their infant children.
