Earthquake Reconstruction for At-Risk Children

Keeping Hope


Nearly 8 months after the earthquake, we are happy to say that all of our institutions and children are safe, healthy, and living in secure environments. The only exception is the case of one children's shelter, home to ten young children.  Donations we have received will be used on reconstruct the wall at Hogar Pléyades. The remaining parts of the wall have been completely destroyed in the meantime, and as a result, the western wall of the property is nonexistent. The children, staff, and management of the home are eager to see the wall restored, as is the team at VE Global. We are continuing to work with Pléyades to assure that the wall is resurrected in a timely, efficient manner. 
Furthermore, the management team at VE Global is beginning work on a Earthquake and Disaster Safety educational workshop, which will reach hundreds of Chilean children. More details will be coming soon!
