Community Oscar Arnulfo Romero (COAR) in Zaragoza, El Salvador, recently sent a letter of gratitude to Spanish teacher Mrs. Sheilah Morgan and her students for translating letters from El Salvadoran children to their English-speaking benefactors.
“Thanks to your students, our sponsors can read the letters personally written by their sponsored-children in El Salvador,” wrote COAR Director of International Programs J. Atlee Horner III. “Your staff and students directly help in our efforts to offer children safe housing, a good education, and regular healthcare. We could never maintain this program without your students’ help.”
Founded by missionaries of the Cleveland Diocese in 1980, today COAR provides education and foster care to hundreds of children as well as medical, dental, and pharmaceutical services to the entire Zaragoza community.
