Homeless in Veracruz, Jose L. survived by diving off the docks for coins that tourists threw in. Like many street kids he was also addicted to inhalants. Knowing he needed help, he made his own way to CHIRIA and received the love and direction he was desperately seeking. Today Jose L. is working with a Godly man from the local church and learning a trade.
The large population of homeless and abused children is an ongoing human tragedy not only in Mexico but throughout the world, BUT YOU can make a difference! The importance of your love and support to these children is priceless! Many of the children sleep with the photos of their sponsors under their pillow at night, others carry the pictures of their sponsors with them wherever they go. One little girl was distraught when she had her sponsors picture in her pocket and got caught in a rainstorm. The picture was replaced, but what cannot be replaced is the life changing impact that you as a sponsor can have on the children.
