Puppy Love

Five-year-old Alvaro, a sponsored boy in Bolivia, hugs his pet puppy. Before Alvaro joined Compassion’s program, he wasn’t healthy because his family didn’t have enough money to buy the nutritious food that all kids need. But since Alvaro was sponsored, he is now eating healthy food and growing strong. He needs lots of energy to play with his puppy!
