The Good Shepherd Children’s Home, BCH’s affiliate orphanage in Xela, Guatemala, received its operating license on October 7, 2014. Just ten days later, Enma Carolina, a four-month-old girl who had been abandoned, became the orphanage’s first child. By mid-November, six children, including three babies and three young siblings, were in care. The home provides a safe haven for indigenous boys and girls suffering from hunger, abandonment and a myriad of other needs. Good Shepherd is BCH’s first ongoing international effort.
