I hope all of you enjoyed a blessed Thanksgiving holiday. Keeping with the spirit of gratitude, I would like to share a heartwarming letter of thanks from a student in Ecuador who was rescued from the streets by our partner Chicos de la Calle (Children of the Street).
Please be blessed as you hear from 14-year-old Karen. She used to spend her days surrounded by drug-related violence and the constant threat of human trafficking—but because of Cross Catholic’s support, now she has been given a safe shelter, an education, and much to be thankful for.
Thank you, Cross Catholic supporters! Because of you, students like Karen now have hope for the future!
Hi, my name is Karen Delgado Sosa. I came to the Chicos de la Calle center five years ago. They helped me to behave well and become educated. I thank the teachers that have been patient with me and taught me to be respectful. They are impacting my life in a special way. I have learned to value people.
Thank you also to those who provided the school scholarships that have permitted me to continue my studies. I love to study and my goal is to be a good professional and encourage other children to study. You have opened the doors to give me and the other children opportunities to be able to participate in many different activities.
I thank every heart that has helped me have high self-esteem and become a respectful person.
God bless you,
