"Aula de Paz" - LA CASA DE LA CHINCA

Medellin, Colombia

Orphanage Upgrade Project

La Chinca was established some 50 years ago to provide refuge care in the short and long term to girls and young women who have been abused in the home or the community and/or are at serious risk of abuse. The facility is a loving caring and protective environment where the girls and young women are protected and provided with the professional support and education needed to both overcome their maltreatment and prepare them for life after La Chinca.

Young girls now are enjoying the "Sala de Paz” (Room of Peace) in Casa de La Chinca - Colombia.

The project includes a therapeutic space for 50 young girls and the kitchen and dining area roof repair. Together we have built a safe and nurturing environment for the youth residing in this special program.
