My Story

Hello! I thank you for reading my update information. My name is Kincer Alessandro Cuyuch Tunay. I will turn 18 years old in November. Thank God, I am in good health. I am in 8th grade. I work at home with study guides, and I turn in my homework every week. We have Wi-Fi, and I communicate with my teacher by WhatsApp. I find it very difficult when I do not understand the lessons in guides, and consequently, it is hard to do the homework. I do not have enough time with my teacher to clear up my doubts. What I've been missing from the feeding program since it's closed due to the pandemic are the biblical teachings and the delicious meals that I used to get every time I attended. I walk 10 minutes to get to the program. Sadly, my father abandoned me years ago, and regrettably, my mother did the same; she left in the middle of last year. She established another family, has a baby girl and is not giving me financial support. Now, I am living with one aunt; she is Jessica Tunay. She works looking after an elderly lady; she is supporting me with my expenses.

We do not out go out anywhere due to a lack of resources, but we try to have a good time together at home. For us, Christmas is a normal day. We just buy something to eat and watch the firecrackers around the neighborhood. We attend Catholic Church, and we felt sad when we could not attend church due to pandemic restrictions. Now, we are attending again. We are renting the house in which we live; there are two rooms made of adobe, tin sheets roof with a granite floor. We have a separate kitchen. We have water and electricity services. This pandemic came to make things harder for everybody. My family ran out of work, and it was very difficult to get our food. My aunt was working in a tortilla shop to support her children and me. Thanks to God's help, we were able to go ahead in spite of difficulties. We are very grateful to Living Water because they have been delivering food parcels and it has been a great support for my family. At home, our needs are food and resources to cover our expenses. To finish, I want to tell you that a member from LW visited us at our home, and my aunt gave her this updated information personally. I leave you for now. Every blessing for you!

Sincerely yours,

Kincer Alessandro Cuyuch Tunay
