Liezel’s Story

I have just told Liezel’s amazing story and journey as a mother in an Urban Slum, she is a striking example of how some love, kindness and some finance can change the destiny of a family and their children.

Baby John (see Mark’s post below) could have been born in very different circumstances, but is proof  a small gift can change the destiny of a child and baby.

It’s a BOY…

Liezel Galera gave birth to John Vinzel on thursday night at 9:15am, no complications, no issues, just a fat little baby boy. Sorry, but no weight is available, as no one told mum those details.

Liezel has taken the option of a tubal ligation, her and Vincent already have 2 little girls, one of which, Angel is 100% blind, so 3 is enough in this happy family.

Here he is…cute as…

Another Birth in Baseco

Elena now has 8 children, she has just given birth to a gorgeous baby girl called Precious Garcia, she was born on Nov 12th this year she weighed 2.1 kg healthy and is breastfeeding beautifully. Thanks to the ladies from Keep Hope Alive.

We are delighted to have supported Elena and Precious, especially since Elena had high blood pressure and had some issues after birth that we could cover financially, what a better way for mother and baby to start their life together instead of stress and financial strain!
