"Rise Up Women of Today!"

Jacinta regularly visits young moms like Renya.

Jacinta is the mother of 10 children—TEN! She lives in the rural community of Rio Azul.

Every day, she sets aside time to help the sick people in her community and to support Food for the Hungry (FH) staff health workers. 

She regularly visits families in their homes, providing advice and education on the best ways to stay healthy. In addition to health, hygiene and nutrition, Jacinta also talks to families about domestic violence, challenging traditional ways that spouses interact with each other and parents with their children.

The time she invests into her community and her tireless efforts to personally support those who need a helping hand has made her somewhat of a local hero. Her ability to know everyone's name, from the oldest to the youngest, has distinguished Jacinta as an important person in Rio Azul.

As a Leader Mother of her Cascade group, Jacinta also dedicates her time and resources to put into practice what she learns from FH. She enjoys trying new things with her own children and then sharing with neighbours what works. FH currently trains 36 Leader Mothers in Rio Azul who, like Jacinta, are committed to seeing their community overcome poverty.

Reyna, a young 22-year-old mother with a three-month-old baby boy is one of the mothers that Jacinta visits regularly. 

"The advice and ideas that FH and Jacinta have shared with me have helped me a lot. Thanks to them now I know many more ways to take care of my son and it is no longer easy for him to get sick."

“Rise up women of today! No matter the difficult situations, we all want a more just community where there is love, and for your children to grow well.” With this phrase, Jacinta cheers the mothers of her Cascade group.
