Children of the Fourth World
Having spent over ten years documenting her story for the documentary film “Children of The Fourth World” I can honestly say that Kari is a living saint! I thank you in advance for any contribution you may be able to provide.
– John Biffar, Film Producer
Mi Refugio Es Jesus is a non denominational, Christian ministry which shares the love of Jesus by providing education (pre-school through high school), food, clothing, medical and dental assistance to these children and their families.
Mi Refugio has been accredited by the Guatemalan government, and all of the teachers are graduates from Guatemalan schools with teaching credentials. Kari Engen is the Executive Director of the ministry, living full time in San Pedro Sacatepequez.
How You Can Help
Please help us keep Kari’s mission alive so she can continue to not only provide an education for the children who call the Guatemala city dump home but also provide them with daily nutrition and spiritual guidance. One hundred percent of all funds we raise will go directly to Kari.
