#OurChildrenAroundTheWorld: Puerto Rico 

 This month's episode of #OurChildrenAroundTheWorld series brings us to Puerto Rico! Maestro Cares Foundation along with its partners funded the construction of, Hogar San Miguel, an orphanage in Ponce, Puerto Rico for disadvantaged boys who have mild to moderate special needs including HIV/AIDs and ADHD. 

Hogar San Miguel serves as a safe and loving home for up to 20 boys ranging from ages 8 to 18 years old. These children suffer from special needs and have been removed from their homes because they are victims of physical/sexual and/or emotional abuse. The highly qualified staff provides special services such as 24/7 accommodations with medical services, social workers, speech pathology, occupational therapy, and audiology treatments. Due to the professional care the boys receive at Hogar San Miguel and the loving staff who encourage them to work hard despite their medical needs, they will now grow up with an improved sense of self-worth!
