KANSAS CITY, Kansas (July 2013) – The Christian Foundation for Children and Aging (CFCA) is preparing to make an awareness trip to Chile, which will take place September 27-October 6, 2013. The CFCA encourages all of its members and supporters to participate, including longtime advocate Greta Siddiqui. Combining her Christian values with her background as an educator, Greta Siddiqui has served as a religious education teacher and actively supports other charitable organizations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The purpose of the awareness trip is to provide sponsors of the CFCA mission in Chile the opportunity to meet the children or the elderly they have sponsored and perhaps their families; to learn about the unique experiences and perspectives of their sponsored friends; to travel to the subprojects to meet other CFCA families; and to visit the towns of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar.
Founded in 1981 by a group of Catholics dedicated to helping the poor, the CFCA works in 21 countries worldwide to provide support and resources for families who live in poverty. The CFCA’s more than 250,000 members sponsor and support over 300,000 children and elderly people around the globe.
