CNN Names JustWorld Partner Project Founder Juan Pablo Romero Fuentes a Hero

Wellington, FL – August 1, 2014 – Juan Pablo Romero Fuentes, the founder of Los Patojos, the JustWorld International partner project in Guatemala, has been chosen as a CNN Hero. The segment airs on CNN tonight through Monday and can also be viewed online at: https://www.cnn.com/2014/07/31/world/cnnheroes-romero/.

All of the children who attend Los Patojos come from underprivileged households that lack the necessary resources to provide these basic needs.

It is time for action.” said Juan Pablo.
