Since 2005, Mensajeros de la Paz has had a temporary home - located in Buenos Aires - for children from ages 6 to 12 who have been legally removed from their homes and families by social services to protect their rights. Colibries is a temporary home that provides assistance, care and support to these children facing this challenging moment.
Children who live at the home have grown up in unstable and insecure environments. They often arrive without identity papers and suffer severe physical and psychological damage. Because they have had their rights as children to identity and security violated, our challenge is to make Colibries a place where they can feel at home during this transitory period in their lives.
At Colibries children receive psychological and medical assistance to help them recover emotionally and physically from prior abuses. Each individual is embraced, understood, and supported by a team of professionals and volunteers. Our programs and services work to develop their unique personalities and instill a sense of security and self-reliance. These assistance programs include a comprehensive diagnosis of each child's case made by professionals to find the best results and solutions.
Coming to the Home is a life-changing experience for these children who need help in their recovery process. Our programs offer the support and the tools necessary to restore self-confidence and start a new life free of previous abuses. The project's primary goal is to ensure that the children are placed in a family that can provide them with a secure environment so they do not go through a situation where their rights could be violated again.
