Once we find sponsor(s) for Jerónimo, he will be one of the 30 boys brought to The Emiliani Project’s new home – Hogar de Cristo opening in 2019. Because the emotional health and security of our children is so vitally important to our mission of rescue, we are only able to move Jerónimo into the new home after we achieve full sponsorship for him. If you wish to sponsor Jerónimo, please click the Donate button above. Or, BACK to the Gallery.

Jerónimo is new to the Hogar Bohío de María in Bello, Colombia. Jerónimo was living with is mother before being brought to the home. His father abandoned him. Each morning, Jerónimo sold fruit with his mother in downtown Medellín. Each afternoon, they moved to San Antonio de Prado (a poor neighborhood in the hills above a nearby town called Itagüí). There she sold her fruits next to Jerónimo’s school until he was finished. After school, he again helped her sell fruit.
Jerónimo is an extroverted, cheerful and intelligent young boy. He’s very charismatic and possess a good deal of street smarts for his age. However, he is eager to get into the home where he can focus on being a child, and on excelling in school.
