Our first project in Chile is now complete!
The Maestro Cares Foundation partnered with Corporación Mater to fund the construction of a temporary pediatric family home, Casa De Acogida, for children who suffer from renal disease and are in need of an organ transplant.
This temporary pediatric family home will be operated by Corporación Renal Infantil Mater and will house up to 24 families while their children receive treatment at the Children’s Hospital in Santiago. Most transplant specialists for renal and urological disease are concentrated in the capital. Children in rural areas who suffer from these diseases need to travel to the city center to get the treatment and care they need.
With Casa de Acogida, families dealing with these illnesses who live far from the city of Santiago can receive free medical treatment and care, while temporarily living in a safe, healthy, and clean space to make their hardship experience more bearable!
We are so proud to announce that the construction for this project is 100% complete! And, we can't wait to see the impact this new home will have on the children and families in Chile.
