Imagine children and mothers fleeing an abusive situation in the middle of the night with nothing but the clothes on their back, only to have to sleep in a broken down bed at the shelter they find! Unfortunately, that’s the situation for women and their children seeking refuge at Casa de Vida, a shelter for victims of domestic violence in Guatemala City.
One of the most prevalent crimes in Guatemala is violence against women, which directly impacts their children. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for women to suffer severe abuse and even lose their lives in these tragic situations.
Lesbia recently made us aware of the urgent need for new beds at the shelter. Currently, most of Casa de Vida’s rooms are equipped with very old, worn out beds that can no longer be repaired. They must be replaced.
To meet this need for beds and other critical needs, we are asking you to partner with us to give these wonderful women and children a safe, nurturing environment. Please help us address this urgent need for beds and furniture.
Join us to meet and exceed the goal of $12,000, which will provide:
Your help is critical to welcoming women and their children into safety. Please—help Cross International provide new beds, furniture and the love of Jesus in Guatemala!
