Haven of Hope Bolivia celebrated Mother’s Day, on May 27th. In Bolivia it is one of the most celebrated holidays of the entire year. During Bolivia’s struggle for independence, a brave group of women laid down their lives. They died in a massacre while defending their homes. This important tragic date paints a clear picture of a mother’s heart to die for the well-being of her family.
At Haven of Hope, our children have come from tainted family experiences. Tragic circumstances like death, addictions, illnesses, cycles of abuse. But thank God for the brave women who have answered the call to be godly mother-figures. Who dedicate their lives to showing God’s heart to the orphaned and neglected.
We honor Gladys Jimenez who chose to use her degree in education to become the mother of many. Her desire to see all the children get a quality education is seen in everything she does! From private school education, to equipping the Tia’s and Tio’s with the tools they need to become tutors her “kids.”
She knows God has a plan for their lives and she does what it takes to ensure they have every opportunity to get a good education!!
Take a moment and check our the blog, she does everything with excellence!!
We love you Mama Gladys!👏🏼👏🏼❤️🤗 #1Director #FuturesofHope #HavenofHope
