In Word And Deed: Feliciana Plants Seeds

WRITTEN BY KATRINA MURPHY




Feliciana Raymundo Sánchez and her husband Juan Guillermo Guzaro Matom live in Acul, a community located approximately 12 km northwest of Nebaj, El Quiché in Guatemala. They have two children, María Elena Vanessa Guzaro Raymundo and Julio Francisco Jonatán. Julio is about one year old.

Food for the Hungry (FH) began working with the Acul community earlier this year (2016), and Feliciana was an eager participant in training and discussions.

I’m happy to have the help they are giving me, because we discuss important topics, like how we need to recognize our children as a gift from God and for that reason we need to feed them well so they can develop and learn while they are in school - Feliciana

With support and coaching from FH, given thanks to the FH Gift Guide, Feliciana has been growing enough vegetables not only to feed her family a variety of fresh, delicious, and nutritious produce, but to sell as well. She is saving money and making money, and it has been an enormous help to the family. She uses the extra money to purchase products for the family—especially for the children.

Feliciana is dedicated to doing whatever she does as well as she possibly can; she likes to know what effect her actions might have. When she talks about her garden, she remembers her family and the larger community, too. “It is important to learn how to make organic pesticides,” she says, “so our children don’t get sick as much. We also need to protect the environment by not using chemical products so we don’t contaminate it.”

Feliciana claims that the conversations she has had with FH staff have encouraged her to lead a healthier life and to care for her children’s health and future more deliberately. If she has one request, she says, it is that you pray for her husband, that he would be successful in his work.
