Catching Up!

You'd never guess it, but in the above picture, Brenda was not yet rescued. She was participating in a feeding program in Guatemala supported by Heaven's Family. As our partner organization worked with her, it became apparent that Brenda was being abused. Instead of seeing progress with her, the partner saw that she was continuing to be malnourished, that her hair was falling out, and that the orange tint in what should have been black hair was not going away.

Smiling despite the stench

A minefield of dog feces and a diarrhea-filled diaper were just a few of the items we had to tiptoe around today to get to young Joseph's home. For outsiders like us, the stench of the slum where eight-year-old Joseph lives was extremely potent. Joseph, however, is accustomed to the smell. His family has lived in this slum, which sits right next to Guatemala's largest garbage dump, for generations. But that generational cycle will end with Joseph, thanks in part to you!

No Longer Down in the Dumps

You'd never guess that Sharon used to work at the city dump in Guatemala. Along with the other pickers, she would search through the mounds of trash left behind by the garbage trucks—looking for something she could sell to earn a living, or some food scraps she could salvage to feed her daughter and herself.

[You Made the] Rain, Rain Go Away…

“No school today!” For the school children of the Western world, snow days are generally a much-anticipated reprieve from studies and, during winter months, it is common to hear children talk excitedly about the days they’ve missed from school. But for students in the under-developed parts of the world, missing school is no joyful occasion. Especially for students in Kenya. Heavy rains there can last for days and take away valuable time for these children who have so little—and for whom education is the ladder to climb out of poverty.
