Who are we

Located in Cochabamba, Bolivia, Talita Cumi is a home equipped to house orphaned, abused, and abandoned children ages 0-10 years old. “Talita Cumi” means “Child, arise!” Words spoken by Jesus when he raised a child from the dead. (Mark 5:41) When all hope seems lost and it seems that tragedy has the final say, may love in its many facets speak to the spirit of these children calling them to rise above their circumstances.


Our home and our hearts are full with incredible little ones! Because Bolivian law prohibits us to post any photos of the children’s faces, SassafrasCoveDesigns has done a watercolor print of each of our children, next to which is a brief story about each child.
