“My name is Darling Díaz, and I live in the Colonia Apoyo al Combatiente neighborhood in Matagalpa. I have four children, and one of them has a disability. Marlon is 7 years old, and he was born with a psychomotor retardation. Because of his condition, Marlon has continual medical needs and requires special nutrition and care. For five years now, Rayo de Sol has unconditionally supported me with my son. They have made certain that he gets medical attention, fortified nutrition, and they’ve even helped with diapers and other supplies. My husband doesn’t have a stable job, and it’s difficult for us to cover the basic necessities of our family.
Last year, I was able to get a job through Rayo de Sol to help me cover my household costs. I participated in a vocational education program and was able to get a job. Rayo de Sol continues to help me, but now I can cover some of my children’s costs with what I earn from my hard work. I’m very grateful for the opportunities I’ve had through Rayo de Sol these past few years. It has definitely changed my life and the life of my family.”
