An Orphanage in the heart of Central America.
Honduras is truly a country of beautiful land and people. The word 'Hondo' in Spanish speaks of the great ups and downs in the terrain and this image could be compared to the qualities one finds in its people. A people of gratitude, of generosity, and goodness of heart, mixed with a situation of great economic poverty, lack of work and educational opportunities, resulting in violence and brokenness.
48.3 percent of people live in poverty (2018)
Honduras struggles with high levels of violence, with more than 38 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants (2018).

In Honduras, in the year 1988, a young religious sister Carmen answered the ring of the doorbell at her convent. There was a woman there with two young girls whom had recently lost their mother. Before she died, the mother asked her friend to find a safe and stable place for her girls. After the meeting Carmen went to the chapel to pray and felt a strong call from the Lord. She recalls thinking "the girls need me more than the congregation"...
All you who are thirsty, come to the water!
You who have no money, come, buy grain and eat;
Come, buy grain without money, wine and milk without cost!
