After 22 years of service, we served and sheltered 597 kids from Puerto Rico island. The instance of child abuse on our island is increasing at an alarming rate. It is painful to see how they need to feel love and safe and, for many reasons, some of them stay in the system all their life. -The children we received were victims of abuse, physical, sexual and/or emotional, we provide to help them in their traumatic situation, providing with medical and emotional support, with love and respect
-At Regazo de Paz, we want to make a difference in our children's life. -We provide a safe and loving environment, a Home that will provide for all their needs. -We receive siblings to help them in the traumatic situation of losing their family. We also have children that are alone with no family that will claim them. With this project we will be able to provide for all their medical needs: therapy, specialize medical services, medical treatments and others needed.
-Since we opened our doors we have seen kids with many effects of the abuse the have received. -With the treatment we will be able to help them achieve a better health, emotional and physical. It is very important to be able to provide for their medical attention and for medical treatments, and to have the Nurse to give the follow up from the doctor's recommendations. -It will help us to provide the medicine and the treatment needed.
