2017/18 Americas Winner – Diego Alejandro Guisao Rodriguez

  • By Diego Alejandro Guisao Rodriguez · Costa Rica, Americas

Diego volunteers at an organization that helps keep children off the streets and out of trouble in Costa Rica. In fact, he has a very personal reason for doing so, as this film will demonstrate…

Diego has a special connection to Fundación Rahab. It supported him when he was younger and struggling with alcohol addiction. Once he turned his life around, he felt inspired to show his heart by doing something to give back. He now volunteers at the organization as a mentor, using his experience to inspire the children.

The DHL prize money Diego won at last year’s DHL’s Got Heart Final will go towards continuing to fund educational activities at the charity, as well as providing hot meals and food vouchers. In the future it will also pay for computers and tuition fees.
