Johan and his brother were brought to the Children’s Home by CONANI when it was discovered their mother was unable to care for them. The boys and their mother had fled from an abusive stepfather and were living on the streets at the time of their discovery. 

Johan has such a sweet disposition and is always willing to share his bright smile and a warm hug. 

He loves to play with his brothers and the house dad’s puppy. He is exceptionally good at baseball even though he’s so small. He loves to run and dance and can climb a tree quicker than you can blink!
