Over the last two weeks we have been able to offer a safe refuge to a lovely family who grew up and lived in a dangerous part of Guatemala City.
The boys were struggling because the local gang were trying to recruit them. When the older boy refused the family started to get voice messages telling them exactly what would happen to the whole family if the boys didn´t accept the offer to join the gang.
The recordings of the death threats helped the family demonstrate to the authorities that they were at great risk and so came to the Casa Alexis home in the city for a couple of weeks until safe passage was offered to them in another country. We wish them well and hope that they are able to thrive in their new environment and we are pleased to be able to play our part in keeping them safe.
Your support saves lives, thank you.
