We wanted to share with you this exciting project of Friends of World Mission (FOWM) that is partnering with Project Down. Project Down is a ministry of the Family Development Foundation in Monterrey that we worked closely with for 6 years and continue to support from a distance now that we are in Oaxaca.
As a support community made up of families with a child with Down syndrome with the goal of ministering to the whole family — not only the child with Down syndrome, but also the parents and the siblings — and empowering them to minister to each other. With the help of FOWM, this project will help sustain the on-going efforts of this Project Down as well as deepen and broaden the level of training and preparation for volunteers and staff to better work along side of this community of families. Please take a minute to look at the following information to see how you can participate in this great ministry.
