Juan (not his real name) had never slept in a bed by himself. For all his six years, he shared a twin mattress with his two brothers and older sister. They lived alone in a single room – without a bathroom or running water.
When Juan and his brothers came to live with us at the Casa Girasoles home, the staff first showed him around the room where he would be staying. They had prepared a bed, especially for Juan, with brand-new Spider-Man sheets and a warm blanket. When Juan saw the bed, he exclaimed with delight – “I’ve never seen such a beautiful bed.”
We’re thankful for beautiful beds and the comfort of sleeping in a safe, secure, loving home. We are grateful that Juan and his siblings are receiving the care and support they need to build the lives they deserve.
We are also thankful for all the generosity we receive from our family of supporters. Thanks to you, we are reaching children like Juan – and changing lives . . . one beautiful bed at a time.
