#OurChildrenAroundTheWorld: Chile

This July, our globetrotting series #OurChildrenAroundTheWorld brings us to Santiago, Chile!
Maestro Cares Foundation is funding the construction of a temporary pediatric home that will house families of childhood patients suffering from Renal disease, many of whom come from rural regions throughout Chile. 
This temporary pediatric family home will be operated by Corporación Renal Infantil Mater and will house up to 24 families while the child receives treatment at the Children’s Hospital in Santiago. 

Pictured above is patient Emma, who traveled alongside her mother from San Francisco de Mostazal to meet with a pediatric Urologist and president of Corporación Renal Infantil Mater, Dr. José Manuel Escala. Emma underwent surgery in 2017 and was able to overcome a renal complication. Without immediate attention, Emma would have faced dire health consequences. Today, Emma is a healthy seven year old who plays and enjoys life just like any other girl! (Translated from @CorporaciónMater)

Maestro Cares Foundation has once again teamed up with Fundación Tecnoglass to sponsor the construction of a new playground and recreation center for Hogar de Paso, a temporary placement home for children ages 6 through 18. The addition of a sports and recreation space was the final step needed to complete this home, and we are proud to be a part of this special project for the children in Barranquilla, Colombia.
