How funding is used for one of our many overseas grant recipients
Casa Corazon de la Misericordia (Heart of Mercy House) is a home in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, for orphaned and abandoned children with HIV/AIDS, Children and accepted with regard to race, ethnicity, gender or religion. Casa Corazón provides children with all the ingredients for a happy childhood – food, shelter, medical care, education and most of all, love. At the home we endeavor to help our children to develop emotionally, socially and spiritually and to educate them so that they may reach their full potential. We meet each child’s special medical needs with antiviral drugs and other needed meds, regular medical exams and lab testing – all of this along with a healthy dose of prayers, love and attention.
Casa Corazón de la Misericordia, a 501 (c) (3) organization, was established by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, a religious order of women committed to the service of those who are poor, those who are sick and the uneducated, especially women and children.
