  1. Bonnie Truax

    Next time you are in Quito Ecuador I have an amazing person for you to meet. His name is Boris, he started living on the streets at age 11 dumpster diving for food and doing street performances to survive. He now lives in a home with a beautiful family and runs a fountain for underage girls rescued from human trafficking. He has a dynamic personality.

    I loved this video. These are the kind of people who should be in the media and honored

      Interesting. I have a friend named Suzanna who does similar, who I met in Quito. I wonder if they work together. I’ll definitely be back in Quito… just a matter of time.
