Story From Despair To Hope

Her name is Rosita, she is 4 years old, and she lives in a one room house constructed on an abandoned lot next to our Haven of Hope Outreach Center. Her house is made of pieces of metal, has no electricity, no running water and no bathroom. Her Mother is a single Mother of four children, her Father tried selling the children for sex to feed his addiction and now has abandoned the family and they are struggling to survive on their own. Many evenings our staff would find Rosita roaming the streets and her Mother was not even aware she was outside of the house. Rosita and her sister also contracted tuberculous because their father has it and they walked bare footed through his fecus. When The Hope Movement opened our doors to help Rosita and her sister they came to us severally malnourished physically and emotionally.

Unfortunately this story is common in the area where The Hope Movement works and we offer the only outreach program in this third largest city of Guatemala. Through our Haven of Hope Outreach Center in Escuintla, Guatemala we are providing daily meals, education, counseling, medical treatment to hundreds of children and families who are struggling for survival and uniting and training local communities to bring lasting change.

Since entering our Haven of Hope Outreach Center little Rosita is now healthy and developing into a wonderful little girl in a safe and loving environment. This is just one story but there are thousands just like Rosita. Thousands of Children who are crying out for someone to rescue them, care for them, love them and provide them with a hope for a brighter future.
