Hogar Monserrate is a refuge for children located in the hills outside of Choconta, Colombia. It is run by the sisters of the Siervas del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus y de los Pobres. They care for fifty (50) children who come from situations where there is no one to care for them or they have no one who cares about them. Many of the children have been abused sexually, mentally and physically. The sisters provide them with a safe, clean place to live, with clean clothes, sufficient food and more importantly, love. They are introduced to Christ and also receive an academic education. The love that flows into them through the sisters, heals the wounds they have in their hearts and changes the direction of their lives. The sisters depend on others to provide the funds to support their efforts, and God Provides for the wants of the poor. Currently, there is a special need and a huge problem at Hogar Monserrate. The large, old and worn out washing machine that the sisters have used for many years has finally died. They need another industrial washing machine to wash all of the clothes, sheets, towels etc. for the fifty (50) children and the sisters. The cost of the machine is $5,000.00. They have no way to resolve this problem and have been trying for months. They purchased a regular machine and had someone working almost full-time to keep up, but that machine has also broken. Please see what you can do to help them.
God Bless You! Jeremiah Horgan
