Located in the 1980’s war-ravaged area of Chimaltenango where GOD’S CHILD Project founder Patrick Atkinson spent years doing war-zone reconciliation and post-war reconstruction, St. Francis of Assisi Orphanage was founded to care for their children whom the original war orphans were unprepared to have and raise alone. Most of the children who survived the massacres of the Mayan Indians that took place at that time suffered, and still suffer, from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), combined with the financial losses and poverty caused by the ravages of war.

The St Francis of Assisi Orphanage provides a safe sanctuary for unwanted and abandoned children; the loving care the babies receive can be temporary while the mother or parents work through personal issues, or may be for a lifetime.

Since the children may one day go home to their parents or a relative, we’re sorry but The GOD’S CHILD Project does not do adoptions of the St. Francis of Assisi Orphanage babies.

Your love, financial support, and sponsorship of a crib, nurse, caregiver, or medical intervention with a child is much needed and always appreciated.
