“I sometimes feel that what is most beautiful must be even more powerful than the sadness… that there will always be light and color in this world.

Hector loves to paint and through his painting, he has found great healing. He expresses himself best through his painting and through his art. He gives everything life! In 2012, Hector transferred to a new art-focused school with support from Compassion’s local church partner. This has encouraged him to develop his skills and find the support he needs to improve.

He recently won a prestigious national award for a painting. His family and teachers are very proud.

The child painter can dream again of being a famous painter!
