Estella

Refuge Guatemala
Guatemala

After three months in prison, Estella was finally reunited with her baby boy. But right after she was released, the drug lords found Estella and demanded that she and her sister return to the drug world. When they refused, the gang murdered her sister, and Estella was forced to flee. At Refuge Guatemala, she found safety. There she found a healing community and the strength to stay clean from drugs. Estella now works with dignity crafting beautiful coffee jewelry. She has earned the money needed to pay her restitution fines and is now attending cosmetology school with plans to become a stylist someday. At Refuge Guatemala, Estella has found freedom from her past. She is beginning a new life, providing for her family, and walking into the future with her head held high.
