Located in Independencia, Santiago de Chile, "Casa de Luz", the first pediatric hospice in South America, is currently under construction. Despite several lockdowns during COVID pandemic, we completed half of the hospice construction and could coordinate several technical visits with our professional team of interior designers and landscapers, who are working in the hospice model. We also went with the Casa Familia Fundación Communications team to record the progress in photos and videos as see attached.
At the same time, we formed a specific communications committee to define the
Communications strategy, and the storytelling that will be executed for Casa de Luz.
We are very happy to tell you that in the month of September 2020, the construction works of "Casa de Luz" were resumed. On the one hand, the workers are giving their 100% to be able to deliver the building at the end of this year. On the other hand, we have a human team specialized in palliative care (doctors, nurses, psychologists) who are working on creating an operating protocol for the first pediatric hospice in South America.
Thank you very much to all who have been part of this great project and with your donation make it possible for this dream to become a reality.

2 months ago they lifted the quarantine in the Independencia district (commune
where "Casa de Luz" is being built) the construction has continued
its normal course, considering the delay for all the months in which it was not
possible to work.
planning delivered by the construction company, the Hospice delivery date is in
October 2021, hopefully so to be able to start receiving children and
adolescents in their final stage of life and deliver quality palliative care
accompanied by his family.
Unfortunately, due to the worldwide pandemic caused by Covid 19, the construction of "Casa de Luz" is suspended, until further notice, since the commune where the work is located, went into quarantine almost three months ago.
We remind you that our project will provide quality palliative care, compassionate, for cancer and non-cancer children with their families in their final stage of life.
However, we continue raising resources, since we do not have 100% of the construction financed. Thank you very much for continuing to support us and we hope that in the next report I will have good news.
At the beginning of March, we began the construction of our "Casa De Luz", the first pediatric hospice in South America, where we will provide quality, compassionate and with their relatives palliative care to children in their final stage of life. The place will have 9 family rooms, where the child's family could be as long as necessary. We will have a team specialized in palliative care, such as nurses, TENS, psychologists and volunteers from Quino who have been training for this accompaniment for a year, under the foundations of psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler - Ross, who dedicated her life to the accompaniment of the dying. We have not yet obtained 100% of the financing, so we ask you not to forget us and make your donations through GlobalGiving. Thank you!
