Jesus Godinez Matrinez now has a real identity! We first met Jesus ar Hogar del Niño and now he is in our Special Needs education program. When he was born, either there was no birth certificate issued or it was lost. Whatever the reason, he had no birth certificate. In Mexico, that is a big problem. Without a birth certificate you cannot go to school. You cannot get health insurance (Seguro Popular) without a birth certificate.
With the help of the Padrino Children’s Foundation, Lorena Amador Franco, Dra. Alejandra, and Antonia, Jesus now has his birth certificate. The process involved many trips to La Paz, a trial, lawyers, and testimonies from his sisters.
