Our program participant, Felix, stayed at the hospital with his daughter for two weeks, following an intensive surgical operation. We are grateful for our friends, families, staff and our volunteers for their on-going support and love for Felix and his family.
Pope Francis said “I ask that you have the grace to be very close to your children, letting them grow, but being by their side. They need you, your presence, to be there, your love!”.
We, at Thrive For Life, are really proud of Felix and all the steps he took since his release 3 months ago.
