What happens to the elderly when their families (who may be barely able to feed themselves) abandon them? Here in San Luis Petén we have a place for those that are left by the way side... A place where they can live out the rest of their life with dignity.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me,
ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’
Matthew 25:35-40 (NABRE)
