Corporación Mater

Santiago, Chile
Ground Breaking: Fall 2020
This is the construction of a home for sick children with renal disease and in need of any organ/body transplant. Most specialists for transplant and renal disease are concentrated in Santiago. Children and their families who suffer from these diseases need to travel to the city center to get the treatment and care they need. With the “Casa de Acogida” families dealing with these illnesses and who live far from the city of Santiago are able to receive free medical treatment and care and live temporarily in a safe, healthy and clean space to make their hardship experience a bit more bearable. The goal is to make the families living at the “Casa de Acogida” feel at home.

Corporacion Mater's mission is to improve the care and treatment of low-income kidney patients and to prevent end-stage kidney damage, which involves dialysis and transplantation.

Twelve children and their mothers can reside in the residence at one time.

The number of people living below the national poverty line in Chile has varied throughout the years. In 2017, this number was at around three million citizens, whereas the number of people living on less than $1.90 a day has successfully reached its lowest point of 0.9 percent of the population.
