The Orphanage

Following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, an orphanage near Aguadilla, began running out of essential supplies and resources.

This orphanage takes in children under the age of 8, including newborn babies, who have been abused, abandoned, or have serious medical conditions.

Time was running out for these children, and the staff feared they would have to close the orphanage for good.

When Friends of Puerto Rico heard of the orphanage’s desperate need of assistance, we stepped in to provide medicine, food, and funding to save the orphanage, keep the children together, and bring hope and smiles back to the children.
