Please Help.

Manos de Cristo is focused on the crucial components needed to build a healthy way of life for children, families, and individuals living in poverty. Individuals served by Manos are not asking for a hand-out, but rather assistance in becoming productive citizens and improving their health during their time of struggle. Thank you for your help.
