Arminda Choque: A Community Mother Leader

Arminda helping with measuring children's height and weight.

Arminda helps measure children’s height and weight.

Poverty, lack of education, short life expectancy, poor sanitation and personal hygiene, malnutrition, chronic illness are not strangers to the people living in the community of Molle Cancha, Toro Toro, Bolivia.

Families struggle to survive every day. Food for the Hungry (FH) facilitators in Bolivia are helping these people and others like them by making it possible for them to have Community Health Agents.

Mrs. Arminda Choque, who lives in the community with her husband Mario and two sons, Orlando and Remberto, is a mother leader. She represents her community as a Community Health Agent. Through her experience with FH, she has learned to care for her children and also help other families to become more aware of ways to better provide for their families.

Arminda teaches a preschooler about hand washing.

She volunteers as support staff at the local health center. Her contribution is a blessing because this type of work takes dedicated commitment and the assumption of responsibility, which she has gained through her work with FH team members.

Arminda is determined to reduce malnutrition in her community. Her dedication and determination provide an example to others living in her community. Her voice is being heard throughout Toro Toro because she has gained the courage she needs to speak up for those who want to have a better life.

 

 

Arminda helps lead a skit that teaches proper hand washing techniques to adults.

As a Mother Community Leader, Arminda empowers other mothers by giving them nutritional counseling, making home visits, and supporting her community’s program of regular height and weight measurements of children under age 5. This program helps to avoid the problems associated with malnutrition by making periodic comparisons that indicate the amount of growth for each child.

Couples in Bolivia often live together for quite a long time without either a civil or church marriage. FH advocates a legal marriage between couples.

Understanding that it was the right thing to do, she and Mario Cancha decided to marry. Now the family unit gives support to Arminda and her husband as they work together to help others. Their children know their parents will be there for them as they continue to grow and learn.

FH awakened the hope for a better future in the life of Arminda who, along with her husband, is now giving that same hope to others in her community. Their neighbors in the community are grateful to them and want to learn from their example. Their desire is to continue to please God as good parents to their children.

We can help her by praying and by giving to FH to continue training those in such communities to become godly people and leaders. Will you awaken their need?
