God Bless the Children
God Bless the Children is located in Guatemala City. Currently it is home to 14 children aged 0-6. The founder of the home is Cinthya Vallejo, a Christian Guatemalan attorney who has been placing neglected and abandoned children in foster homes since 2004. As foster care is no longer authorized by the government, the home was founded in 2010. Children are placed in the home by the Juvenile Courts from various regions of the country and come from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. At God Bless the Children, they meet the physical, mental, educational and spiritual needs of each child, by giving them a family model where they receive love and Christian principles.
Rehoboth Children's Home is located in the town of Chimaltenango, located 35 miles west of Guatemala City. Rehoboth is home to children between two and 18 years old. The name of the home is based on Genesis 26:22. In this passage, Isaac had dug two wells in the new land and those around him quarreled with him, saying it was theirs. Once he had dug the third well, no one quarreled over it and he named it Rehoboth, saying, "Now the Lord has given us room as we will flourish in the land." This means a lot to the children of Rehoboth; it reminds them that though their parents and others have abandoned them, God has made room for them. Guatemala has one of the highest violent crime rates in Latin America; your sponsorship will help these children have a fair chance to overcome these statistics and live a life full of God's abundance.
Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.
- Mark 9:37
