The Libreros, Edinson and Dora, are a couple with passion for God, they love to serve and have a heart to help others. For over 12 years they were dedicated through their entrepreneurial experience to help in other countries as Mexico, and Colombia. Now they are entirely dedicated to feed, clothe and love the poor and needy, in Central Florida and overseas. The Libreros’ vision is to continue to expand and be able to not only provide food and clothing but to restore and educate families to become valuable and self sufficient, also providing temporary shelter. There are many homeless, abandoned and abused individuals that are in need of love, food, clothing and a place to rest and be nurtured. Project leaders
