ROCIO & DELIA ESCALANT : They are sisters who come from a dysfunctional family. They have three other siblings, two of which have gone missing, and their other brother has mental health issues. Their mother suffers from alcoholism, as does the grandmother, which is why they were placed in government care. The community contacted the police because of domestic issues and the court declared the family unfit to raise children. Rocio, the oldest, is studying in the 6th grade of secondary school, and her dream is to study medicine at university in order to become a doctor.
Delia, the younger, is in the 3rd grade of elementary school, and is also a good and responsible student. Next year is Rocio’s final year at the orphanage and so needs support for continuing her studies, finding a safe place to live, and daily living expenses such as food. The sisters are best friends, and if its possible, we hope to keep them together once Delia has to leave the orphanage as well.
