He was abandoned by his mother (prostitute) and father (alcoholic) when he was just a baby. A neighbor took in Rafael after he was abandoned. This neighbor and her husband, however, physically abused Rafael. When he came to our home, his entire body was covered with bruises. One rainy night, the neighbors threw him out into the street. Rafael walked for miles to a police station. The police finally rescued him and he was eventually placed in our home.

About God Bless The Children

God Bless the Children is located in Guatemala City and is home to children aged 0-6.  The founder of the home is  Cinthya Vallejo, a Christian Guatemalan attorney who has been placing neglected and abandoned children in foster homes since  2004.  As foster care is no longer authorized by the government, the home was founded in 2010. Children are placed in the home by the Juvenile Courts from various regions of the country and come from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. At God Bless the Children, they meet the physical, mental, educational and spiritual needs of each child, by giving them a family model where they receive love and Christian principles.
