After a fire at a government orphanage in San Pedro Sula, Honduras left 150 kids homeless, a dedicated team traveled 6.5 hours north to bring 70 of the toddlers south to live at the Orphanage Emmanuel in Guaimaca, Honduras.
Even though this is the largest children’s home in Honduras, the additional 70 children increased their population by 15% and caused a critical need for new space. We provided a grant of $22,000 to build to a new toddler house.
World Orphan Fund founders, RJ & Valerie Johnson’s youngest sponsor child Junior was in this group of 70 toddlers. He’s a beautiful and happy boy, but he was clearly abused early in life and came with a host of challenges from his traumatic first 3 years of life. Thank God these children found a loving, safe place to call home.
