Albergue Infantil los Pinos AC. was founded in 1987 to support children in vulnerable situations and extreme poverty by providing them with the tools to become good citizens, self-sufficient humans and promoters of a better society. Children and adolescents come to our Albergue from difficult backgrounds (lack of love, malnutrition, and depression/fears caused by psychological and sometimes physical abuse).
The project has two houses:
House of Children: serving 70 children from 4 to 12 years old
Youth House: serving 30 minors between 13 and 18 years old
The project wants to be a home for children who do not have one.
