WALTER AND JACKY’S

Walter and Jacky’s Journey to a Safe Home
In the heart of Antigua Guatemala, Walter and Jacky have faced more challenges in their young lives than most can imagine. Their story is one of pain, resilience, and an unwavering hope for a better future for their two children, Damián and Monserrat.

Jacky, only 23, grew up without the comfort of parental love, raising her sisters alone and navigating a world of uncertainty. Walter, 28, also experienced a fragmented childhood, with sporadic contact with his mother and no stable home to speak of. Together, they have shouldered the weight of these painful pasts while striving to build a stable and loving environment for their family.

Currently residing in the dangerous neighborhood of San Isidro, Walter and Jacky’s daily lives are overshadowed by violence and insecurity. Despite these harsh conditions, they have clung to the dream of providing their children with a safe, nurturing home.

Their perseverance bore fruit when, with the help of Manuela, a compassionate donor and Walter’s employer, they managed to acquire a plot of land in Ciudad Vieja. Here, they began the foundations of their new home—a place where their children could grow up free from fear. Yet, their limited financial resources have halted construction, leaving their house unfinished: bare block walls stand without a roof, windows, sanitation, or flooring.

Walter works tirelessly to provide for his family, even when job opportunities are scarce, and Jacky, with profound gratitude, continues to work alongside Manuela to improve their circumstances. But despite their best efforts, the completion of their home remains a distant dream.

This is where our compassion and collective strength can make a difference. By coming together to support Walter and Jacky, we can help them turn their fragile beginnings into a sturdy foundation. We can give them the security and peace of mind that every family deserves, transforming their story from one of struggle to one of triumph.

With your help, we can build not just a house, but a home where love, safety, and hope can flourish.

Join us in this mission to change lives and show that, even in the face of adversity, the power of compassion can build brighter futures.
