You are a helping hand and part of our children's life.

Teach me, choose wisely, God is good for my life.
Teach me, choose wisely, God is good for my life.

Greetings, from all of us at Hogar de Niños Regazo de Paz. 

 ¿You know that Regazo de Paz means Lap of Peace? Yes, we are a Home for Children, a Lap of Peace. Our goal is to give them a home full of care, love and peace.

Let me explain a little why it is so important your support, and why we are counting on your help:

-We fight poverty - providing for our children, abuse and abandoned children, for all their basic needs, medical services, tutorial, recreational activities and everything they may need.

-Ensure adequate housing - by providing an adequate Home with all the commodities, secure and appropriated, for them to enjoy and have a good environment, with a great place to play and to give them the challenges to a very healthy growth.

-Reduce abuse – though our program Älerta estudiantil” (Students Alert) of prevention, we have provided documentation and presentations in schools, churches and other places to prevent the abuse of children. 
And teach how you can discipline in a correct way; to teach how the things are done not with screams and/or abuse. This past year we were invited to various schools and churches.

This past year we received 37 kids, girls and boys, from different parts of Puerto Rico; from 2 days old to 7 years old.  They received for all their basic needs, specialize medical services, nutrition, medicines, school transportation, tutorial with our two tutors, recreational activities, sports and everything they need, some with special needs received special medical attention. 

We feel very pleased to be part of their lives and to provide for them.  We are blessed to be part of their restoration,
to see some of them going with adoptive parents; to see how they change their sadness to a very happy and healthy child.  Being part of a child’s restoration is something very impressive and makes you feel that you are part of his/her live and it is important that you do your best.

Since we opened the Home in 1995, we have received and served 567 kids from all over Puerto Rico. You are part of this project, of their lives, of their future, because we are working towards a better world for our children.

Thank you in every specia l way for your support and love for our children, who are the recipients of everything we do and receive at the Home. Merry Christmas.
