Providing a home, health care and education to children affected by HIV / AIDS.
San Martin (El Salvador)
The Children’s Home “San Martin” for children with HIV +, is located in the town of San Martin, was created in 2004 by the NGO Messengers of Peace.
Due to the considerable increase of cases of HIV / AIDS among children under one year, this home was built to give shelter, education, treatment and psychological care.
The 21 children living in this home and whose ages ranged between 0 and 10 years, were from households lacking financial means to cope with their treatment and several of them had been abandoned. They were given a very personalized attention due to the delicate state of health that were requiring several times, attention twenty four hours a day.
The Foundation funded maintenance from 2006 to 2010.
