Real stories from the Hogar

Their TV was the flow of the river, their toys were the pebbles on the shore. For over a month, they lived under a bridge. Not willing to send their children to beg, the family stayed together accepting the generosity of strangers. Still, it was not enough. The details of their situation are extremely heartbreaking.

Working with Casa del Migrante and the Posado San Franciso, we brought them to Hogar de Esperanza. The children watched TV for the first time in a long time, they got toys. They will be staying at the Posado during the night and with us during the day for the next few weeks or so until we and our partners are able to find a permanent solution for them.

The children are malnourished and have medical issues, so we will be taking them for medical checkups on Monday. I deal with a lot of poor families but these 6 children are amazing and the love of the parents is incredible. They are respectful, grateful and not demanding. The father asked me if I knew somewhere, someone can loan him a piece of land so he can grow his own food and not have to depend on others. Now, that is something we do not hear often.

If you want to help this Colombian family, you can contact me. For those who have our old phone number (the cellphone was stolen... yes, it does happen... and we do not have a replacement yet), there is a temporary change in our phone number.
