4 brothers

Brothers Rolando (back), Rosendo (front left) and Victor (front right), along with their oldest brother Angel (who refused to be photographed!) make up Casa Shalom's largest sibling group. The 4 boys came to Casa Shalom a few years ago after the government removed them from their parents' home, which was located inside Guatemala City's largest garbage dump. The boys and their parents spent their days digging in the dump for material to use or sell. After arriving at the orphanage, all the boys had to be taught not to dig in the garbages! These wonderful boys are the perfect example of why a safe, loving home like Casa Shalom is so needed in Guatemala. Make praying for Casa Shalom one of your resolutions for 2009 (one of the resolutions you keep!).
