Providing Milk For a Baby in Zacapa
Later we found out that the family took the baby back and moved out of the neighborhood with all 8 children. There has been no further contact with them until the father came by drunk one day and offered to sell the baby to them for 100Q about $13 US dollars. These are some of the issues that are unheard of here in the US but are a normal way of life in Guatemala. Unfortunately children in most cases have no value to an already starving family. UNICEF estimates there are 370,000 orphaned children in Guatemala. This is why my heart cries with compassion to help the least of these.
