Another street death in Guatemala City

One of the young people that we had worked hard to keep off the streets, enter into rehab and consider how he could achieve his childhood dreams, sadly passed away at the central hospital here in the capital this week.

Pablo was only 20 and had been struggling over the last few months with drug abuse and street life.  The SKDGuatemala street team, Benjamin, Hector and Emma had worked hard to get him into rehab and we even made a video of that in December when we hoped he had turned a corner.

Starting the week with a funeral was not what we had planned, but his funeral was taken by Mark Balfour and we had managed to make contact with his family and so they were present together with all those working with him here in Guatemala.  It is our first funeral of the year and each death is another great loss, but it does continue to strengthen our determination to rescue as many from the streets as possible.
