Daville: Finding a Safe Haven

Daville: Finding a Safe Haven

   Katie Chatham
   15 November 2019

 

Growing up in Albert Street, a community located in downtown Belize City, can be very challenging. Most children have been exposed to violence and gang activity by a very young age. These children are not taught in their homes to have dreams for the future, but instead, have to fight against assumptions that they will grow up to be like the drug dealers, prostitutes and thieves that they see on their streets every day. 

But, that is not the story for Daville! Thanks to our incredible sponsors and team, he and dozens of other children have encountered Hope at their local CarePoint, and that Hope is changing their lives. 

Daville has been attending the Albert Street CarePoint since he was six years old. He calls it his “safe haven” in his city. Like many other children in Albert Street, Daville comes from a single parent home. While there is lots of love in his home, he does not have access to medical assistance or academic support. Now, because of the CarePoint, he has learned to read and has access to computers to continue to learn. He also receives the medical care he needs for his eye condition.

His safe haven has meant so much to Daville and he says the thing he has learned the most while there is that “Jesus loves him and he can do all things through Christ who strengthens him.”
