Help Street Children Find a “Life of Hope”
There are over 40 million street children in the world and approximately 10 million live in Latin America alone. There are thousands of children living in the streets in Guatemala City. These precious lives end up on the street because of a multitude of social problems. Illiteracy, physical and emotional abuse, and violence makes the life of street children extremely difficult.
Life of Hope Ministries has established partnerships with existing field partners in Guatemala who provide basic education, health care, emotional support, and spiritual growth opportunities. Our current partners are Tita Evertsz (La Limonada), New Life for Santa Faz, Cristo es El Camino-(church at the dump) and Tiempo de Rescate (Time of Rescue).
As a Christian children’s charity our organization serves orphans and families at risk of producing street children.
Becoming a a partner in the efforts of Life of Hope Ministries will allow you to: share in acts of kindness to children in need, share the love of Jesus in a practical way, show thankfulness for the blessings you have received, and use your skills and abilities to help children and families in need.
