Love the Child (Amor del Niño) is a private Christian orphanage that provides comprehensive care and developmental support for abandoned, orphaned, abused, and special needs infants in Guatemala
Love the Child has created a unique, family–like atmosphere in which to care for these precious children.
We are committed to providing for each child
Is to enable these children, through loving relationships with caring adults and with one another, to develop into healthy and complete image bearers of God who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and who will have a positive effect on their culture and their world.
You Can Help
About 60 infants are abandoned in Guatemala every year. We receive on the average one abandoned baby per week. Not every infant needs adoption, but with a small amount of support, parenting classes and therapy, a mother has the opportunity to be reunited with her child.
Love the Child relies on monthly donations to provide for the daily needs of the 50 children living in the home. The children range in age from newborn to 5 years old, with an average 20 infants under the age of 12 months.
