Hello everyone, I'm known as Hipolito! I'm so glad you are interested in knowing more about me.


Here is a younger picture of me so you can see how much I've grown

Birthdate: April 27, 1997

Since: January 21, 2008

Hipolito is a special boy. We have seen many miracles in his life, but now we need another miracle. He has severe diabetes.  Hipolito needs lots of encouragement. With all the trauma that he has gone through as a child, being hospitalized is not easy for him. He is 22 years old but not ready to live on his own. He lives with Colacio his friend at a house next to the center.

My health


Please pray for Hypolito's health. He recently didn't need to have his foot operated on from having sores on it and that was an answer to prayer. Please pray for Hypolito's diabetes and HIV. Sometimes he looks a bit depressed, so pray for his emotional state.


We praise the Lord that Hypolito is doing better health-wise and that he likes to live with Colacio in the house next to the center. This is his first step into having his own life.
