Faces of The Fellowship: Leon

Leon’s mother works as a full-time assistant in a local kindergarten. When she returns home, she spends her evenings sewing and knitting, hoping to sell her handmade items in order to increase her meager income. Her husband abandoned the family shortly after Leon was born, and he has provided no assistance and shown no desire to spend any time with his son."Where's my daddy?" Leon, now 5, often asks, never having fully accepted his father’s absence. Though he is a kind and gentle boy, Leon is often very upset. He is also physically weak and requires special foods to grow stronger and healthier. However, they are extremely expensive and impossible for his mother to afford.This year, Leon and his mother received a special food box for Passover from The Fellowship. Leon was extremely excited. In addition to getting to enjoy special holiday food, he felt like somebody does care about him and wants to help him. The food box meant that even this needy family could celebrate Passover properly, and they were so thankful.
