Name: Noe Choc
Date of Birth: 8/8/2007
Noe was staying at a hospital with his critically ill mother. The hospital Social worker became aware of the desperate situation and recommended to the boyfriend of the now unconscious mother that he should take Noe to children’s court and have Noe placed in a children’s home. Noe’s mother died the next day while being transported to a different hospital. Because of the situation of the boyfriend’s illness and the mother’s death, Noe was tested for Aids and found negative. There is no record of an extended family.
Location: Rehoboth Orphanage
Rehoboth Children’s Home is located in the town of Chimaltenango, located 35 miles west of Guatemala City. Rehoboth is home to boys and girls between two and 18 years old. The name of the home is based on Genesis 26:22. In this passage, Isaac had dug two wells in the new land and those around him quarreled with him, saying it was theirs. Once he had dug the third well, no one quarreled over it and he named it Rehoboth, saying, “Now the Lord is given us Room and will flourish in the land.” This means a lot to the children of Rehoboth; it reminds them that though their parents and others have abandoned them, God has made room for them. Guatemala has one of the highest violent crime rates in Latin America; your sponsorship will help this child.
