Hello, we are Matt and Kerry Blacklock, Directors of Hijos de Dios. We have worked with children, youth and families in Canada and Central America for over 20 years and specifically in Guatemala for the last 10 years.
We are constructing a facility to navigate the process of family healing and restoration.
We have been given a beautiful one acre gated community that has an excellent well, septic system, power and 5 houses.
We are in the process of renovating the homes and constructing 2 well-engineered multipurpose buildings.
The first building would have an industrial kitchen, dining area, laundry facility, storage and bathrooms. The second would have a large multi-purpose room, an early education classroom, dance studio, 2 offices, staff room, storage and bathrooms. We will also have a sport pad and a park for families.
The projected building costs will be $250,000 CDN for the entire project.
Guatemala is a nation that truly needs the support of other nations; but not as a hand out, but an opportunity to model family reunification. With your support, we believe many families will be healed and empowered so the cycle of poverty, neglect and separation can be broken.
