March 2024: Empowering Girls

At Hogar Genesis, we believe that every girl deserves a chance to thrive, regardless of the circumstances they were born into.  These vulnerable and abandoned girls have faced unimaginable challenges, from poverty to broken relationships, leaving them without a safe haven or the love they deserve. But within the walls of Hogar Genesis, the home provides more than just shelter; it offers a lifeline of love, support, and opportunity.  By rescuing and caring for these girls, we’re not just changing their lives; we’re rewriting their futures. We’re giving them the chance to heal, to grow, and to discover their own strength and resilience. 

Every girl at Hogar Genesis is a story of hope, and by standing with us, you’re not just supporting a cause; you’re changing lives and building a brighter tomorrow for generations to come. 

Feb 2023: Celebrate the power of love and family!

Many provinces in Canada celebrate Family Day on Feb 19 to emphasize the importance of family values. As we honour the bond that ties us together, we reflect on heartwarming stories of family reunification at Hogar Genesis.

After one year and seven months, two beautiful girls, Jesse and Lisette, have finally returned home with their mom! Jesse and Lisette’s mom embarked on a courageous path, undertaking treatment, and engaging in various exercises guided by dedicated professionals from both sides, including the legal staff. Today, we celebrate the restoration of their family unit, a testament to the power of love & faith. Their journey towards reunification was made possible through your generous support.

Just recently, we witnessed another beautiful reunion as three siblings were joyfully reunited with their uncle and aunt. The efforts of therapy and legal proceedings facilitated by the government led to this beautiful reunion, granting them the stability and love of a familiar family bond. These heartwarming stories remind us of the importance of the family unit and the impact it has on the lives of vulnerable children.

At Hogar Genesis, one of the goals is to provide Christian counsel and support for families in crisis with the hopes of restoring the family unit. Through therapy, legal assistance, and essential care, Rodolfo and his team work tirelessly to reunite families wherever possible and create a nurturing environment where love and faith flourish.

August 2023: Meet the Newest Members

Meet the resilient little heroes from Hogar Genesis in Iquitos, Peru. These two precious sisters, ages three months and seven, have faced unimaginable challenges in their young lives. They and two other siblings were trapped in a cycle of abuse. Their oldest sister was abused by their addict stepfather several times, and their mother denied all responsibility.

Hogar Genesis is not just a home; it’s the hands of Jesus reaching out to these children in their time of need. Thanks to the unwavering dedication of Hogar Genesis, these sweet siblings have been rescued from their abusive home and welcomed into a haven of care, love, and healing.

July 2023: A Message from Rodolfo

“Good morning and blessings! It’s amazing how God works wonders in our lives. Currently, we have three babies and nine girls at the children’s home Genesis who are experiencing supernatural transformations and love. However, it’s been a challenging journey every month as we strive to meet our budgetary needs. Our monthly expenses include food, formula, diapers, school expenses for the nine kids, transportation, medical care, salaries for the caregivers, social worker, psychology and administrative team, and maintenance of the house. To cover all these costs, we require funds, but unfortunately, the government doesn’t offer any support. We humbly ask for your prayers and support. We appreciate every single person who has been praying for us and supporting the kids at Hogar Genesis. Every coin counts as a blessing for these precious babies and girls. Thank you for your generosity and continued support.” – Rodolfo

June 2023: Alison turns one!

Hogar Genesis started the month of June, celebrating the first year of baby Alison. Rodolfo says, “What an honour that God allows us to be part of her life and care for her and all these girls!”

May 2023 – From Trash to Treasure: A Miraculous Rescue and a Home of Love

We wish to share a touching story that embodies the power of compassion and the remarkable difference your support can make. It is a tale of two abandoned infants who found hope in the heart of Iquitos, Peru.

Several weeks ago, in the quiet night hours, a tiny bundle was left at the plaza in Belén, a place where so many hearts go unnoticed. A woman who discovered the baby arrived at the regional hospital emergency, carrying the newborn male. Meanwhile, across the city, another innocent life was discarded callously amidst the refuse of a trash bin. However, fate intervened, and the diligent hands of the PTL waste collectors discovered this precious soul before it was too late.

A few days ago, the baby girl, just shy of one month old, was released from the hospital, ready to embark on her journey toward healing and growth. Through divine providence, she is now being welcomed into the nurturing embrace of Hogar Genesis, a children’s home nestled in the heart of Iquitos, Peru. It is a testament to the power of love and the unyielding belief that every child deserves a chance at happiness.

As we celebrate this joyous occasion, we are reminded that our work is far from over. The baby boy, who has been under the watchful eyes of medical professionals, is soon to be released. His destiny awaits him at the boys’ children’s home, thanks to Rodolfo’s tireless efforts as a private lawyer, which have paved the way for a brighter future for many children like him.

With unwavering determination and unwavering love, Rodolfo, a dedicated lawyer, and his wife Saraid have devoted their lives to providing a haven for the abandoned and abused children in Iquitos. Hogar Genesis stands as a beacon of hope, offering shelter, care, and an opportunity for a brighter future to those most need it.

Together, we can be the change these children need. Your generosity will impact their lives and shape the course of their future, offering them a chance to break free from the cycle of abandonment and abuse. By donating today (click here), you become a lifeline for these innocent souls, enabling them to flourish and realize their true potential.

March 2023, Quarterly Update

Investing in girls’ education, health, and well-being is essential to breaking the cycle of poverty, and investing in girls today will help ensure a brighter future for everyone.

We’re happy to announce that student sponsorships are live for Hogar Genesis! Your support means the world to these little ones and us. Read the latest updates here.

March 2023: Meet Our Miracle Baby!

Maria is free from HIV! We are celebrating God’s mercy and grace on this beautiful girl! Maria is a lovely baby girl who arrived at Hogar Genesis last June when she was just a month old. Her parents are drug addicts and have HIV. Initial tests confirmed that baby Maria had HIV too.

Maria was re-tested again this week, and Rodolfo was ecstatic to share that she has been declared 100% free from HIV! Rodolfo and his staff have faithfully served the twelve girls in the home, nurturing and nourishing them physically, mentally, and spiritually!

Your support is CRITICAL to keep the children’s home in Iquitos open and running smoothly. Thank you for your generosity!

Note: Since newborns keep their mother’s antibodies until they produce their own antibodies at around 18 months of age, a positive neonatal HIV test result reveals the presence of maternal antibodies that indicate exposure to the virus, not necessarily infection by the virus. A baby born to an HIV-positive mother will thus always test positive for HIV, whether that newborn is truly seropositive or not. If the virus did not infect the baby, the baby will eventually lose its mother’s antibodies and test negative for HIV. (*AMA Journal of Ethics)

March 2023: Empower A Girl Today!

Girls are often more likely to suffer from poverty, malnutrition, and other forms of discrimination in poor communities. Investing in girls’ #education, health, and well-being is essential to breaking the cycle of poverty, and investing in girls today will help ensure a brighter future for everyone. Educated girls are more likely to marry later, earn higher incomes, and lead healthier, more productive lives. Better education opportunities also help reduce gender inequality, and #empower girls to make informed decisions about their health and futures.

On #InternationalWomensDay, we are happy to announce that student sponsorships for Hogar Genesis are now LIVE! If you are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children through education, head over to www.impacthope.ca/sponsor-a-student!

Through the sponsorship program, these children gain access to education, nutrition, and other essential resources they need to thrive. By sponsoring a student, you will help them reach their full potential and escape the cycle of poverty. We hope you will join us in this effort and become a sponsor today.

January 2023, Milestones

Rodolfo and Saraid try to give the children a sense of normalcy by celebrating the important milestones and simply teaching them to appreciate life daily!

Pray for Peru!

Though the situation is more peaceful at Hogar Genesis in Iquitos, Rodolfo continues navigating through the daily challenges of rising costs and expenses.

Please continue to pray for a peaceful resolution! Your support can mean a world of difference to the many children blessed by these shelters.

December 2022, Baby Maria

If you met Rodolfo, you would see him smiling, joking around, sharing the love of Christ, and pouring into the lives of those who approached him. This commitment, this passion, this drive, this compassion, and this selflessness are what drive the Street Ministry in Peru.

Belen, one of Peru’s most distressed communities, is inundated by floods from Jan to June every year. Residents experience many problems, such as a lack of clean water, sanitation, adequate healthcare, etc. Rates of illness, violence, alcoholism, drug abuse and teen pregnancy are very high.

Your donations make this outreach happen, and we are so grateful for your support.

Belen Kids is a program where Rodolfo and his team educate children in remote city areas. Rodo and his team visited the kids this Christmas season and celebrated with worship, activities, and food.

Blog Post: Brian’s Mission Trip to Iquitos

Brian and his family travelled to Iquitos in Peru at their own expense in 2019 to assist Rodolfo in his ministry, experience life amongst the local people, and create a general awareness of their living conditions.

“Around 10 p.m., I was in the middle of one of the poorest areas of Peru in Iquitos; Rodo and I had just visited one of the city’s drug holes in the middle of the night. Sarah had already returned to the house with Saraid and the kids after dinner. Words cannot describe how this seemingly crazy and dangerous experience will forever change my whole perspective on life…”

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.

September 2022, Quarterly Update

April 26, 2022

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.

April 21, 2022

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!
