STORIES THAT CHANGE LIVES
The names have been changed to protect the privacy of the children involved.
One day in the Villas:
José Andrés has not had an easy childhood !!! His mother feared for her life and took refuge in her aunt's house, but his father managed to find her. JA was left alone so he needed to be protected urgently. He was transferred by the Police to “Las Villas de los Chiquiticos”. He was very hungry and his clothes were still stained from the violence he had witnessed.
At “Las Villas” the first thing he received was a warm hug, followed by a plate of hot oatmeal. Then he was taken to the "Villa Esmero" where he met who would be his "godmother" in FUNDANA. All the kids call her "mae", and JA can call her that too. The "Mae" took him to the bathtub where they played while she washed him.
JA like all the children of “Las Villas” received a change of clothes for the day and night. He has a bed with Paw Patrol sheets, and a teddy bear to accompany him during the night. But in the dark JA remembers what he has lived, cries and screams in despair. He is very sad and has nightmares. Luckily "Mae" is there to accompany him, calm him down and tell him a story.
In the morning our psychologist will attend to him, as well as the pediatrician and nutritionist who will evaluate him to guarantee the treatment and diet according to his needs. Once he is more calm and accustomed to the routine of his new home: "Villa Esmero", he will start going to the preschool inside the Villas, to the central square, to music and soccer classes. For now, we are just going to ensure that he feels safe, loved and accompanied. Meanwhile, the social work team of Fundana, strives to find a member of his family that is both motivated and qualified to raise him.
