October 2022, Baby Maria

Little Maria is on the move! We love sharing these milestones with you and hope you will rejoice in their accomplishments.

Maria is a beautiful one-month-old baby girl who arrived at Hogar Genesis last June. Her parents are drug addicts and have HIV. Sadly, tests have confirmed that baby Maria has HIV too. Our partners Rodolfo and Saraid and the eleven other girls in this home are now Maria’s family.

We need your constant prayers for this precious little one who suffers from related health complications. The nights are long and trying for her caretakers, and she currently suffers from bleeding in her ears. Our prayers can accomplish so much, so we ask that you keep the home in your requests.

In the face of a grim reality, Hogar Genesis is a home that loves and cares for children who have been abandoned, neglected, or trafficked. Your contributions have made this ministry a beacon of hope for the most vulnerable. We hope you will continue supporting this cause and give these children a fighting chance at a brighter future.

Child poverty reached 32.1% in 2021, and domestic violence is expected to have increased in migrant homes.

Flooding is part of life in Belen, a riverside community home to thousands of people who cannot afford to live in safer parts of Iquitos. The district is being increasingly subjected to more dramatic flood seasons as climate change affects weather patterns in the Amazon basin. Travelers know Iquitos as the ‘capital of the Peruvian Amazon.’ Still, scientists know it as a hot spot for mosquito-borne viral diseases, with raging outbreaks in many tropical and subtropical countries.

We request your prayers🙏for our Kids Program in Belen. Belén is experiencing floods this year as well, and the lack of proper infrastructure has caused many children to fall sick. Tragedy💔has struck as several babies drowned in the water because their homes did not have walls.

Rodolfo and his team teach, organize activities, and share the love of Christ with children in Belen every week. These children are taught life lessons and, more importantly, shown how to love others, allowing Jesus to be their guide in life. Their ministry is a beacon of hope to the children, many of whom lead difficult lives.

Sarita arrived at the HOGAR GENESIS one afternoon in February this year, and was brought there directly from the Regional Hospital of Iquitos by the pertinent authorities. She was declared to be in a state of provisional abandonment. Her parents suffered from mental issues and alcoholism and worked on the streets of Iquitos.

Rodolfo and Saraid have redefined the meaning of ‘family’💓for this little one, and now at 3-months of age, she is a thriving bundle of joy for the other girls! 

Thank YOU for being part of this vital mission – you have brought HOPE to Sarita!

“What a great blessing to be able to have everything ready to receive the first girls at  Hogar Genesis! Yesterday the last tools (Bugs, plates, spoons) needed to be able to receive these girls and provide them the comprehensive care that they also need and a baby bath to keep them clean and free from the risk of diseases.
 
God is faithful and in his mercy, we can remain firm in our mission to give Care and protection to those who need it!” – Rodolfo

The excitement for HOGAR GENESIS (Children’s Home) is great, but the NEED is greater! Tragic stories of abandoned and neglected children are sadly not uncommon in Iquitos, Peru. Will you help us change these stories and get these children escape the cycle of poverty? Gustovito is a precious little 6-year-old boy who has a little 4-year-old brother named Jimmy. His story is not a very happy one and unfortunately, is a common one for children in Iquitos. Gustovito’s mother is a drug addict who is still…(continue reading his story: https://impacthope.ca/support-hogarge…).
