Fall Appeal 2019   Dear Friends:  I want to introduce you to five incredible women Yorleny, Belen, Maria, Carmen and Shirley. They are campesinos (farmers) living in Coronado, Osa Peninsula, a rural area in the southern part of Costa Rica. This is an area of extreme poverty and high unemployment. Alcoholism and substance abuse are rife – in both adults and adolescents.
