How your donations would help us:
1. We are in urgent need of more housing space to accommodate more children and their mothers.
2. A larger area of land and accommodation, to provide the space where children can play, recover and heal in a safe, clean, nurturing and loving environment.
3. Allow for more resources (ie. more staff and economic capabilities) to support Sonja to continue her amazing work.
"Casa de Restauracion" is a private social non-profit organization that offers shelter to women and children. The shelter was founded two years ago by a wonderful woman named Sonja Piez Bautista, who created a home to provide a safe, stable and nurturing environment. The demand for her private shelter is desperately growing but due to the limited space at their current location, she is at present only able to provide full-time care for 5 children maximum without their mothers.
Should this shelter not exist, the heartbreaking alternative would be the children being taken into the care of the state, away from their families.
Alongside providing a home, love and full-time care, Sonja also visits the houses of 45 other children living in poverty providing food, clothing, school necessities, emotional support and above all to ensure the children are not neglected.
With your help, we want to create a Family Shelter, with a dorm room capacity for boys and girls separately and one dedicated for the women. This would allow these women to be together and share their experiences while offering a safe space to recover from their own trauma.
We need your help to raise money through the GoGetFunding platform to achieve our objectives. By supporting this initiative, you are actively participating in breaking the cycle of violence and poverty. Our vision is to create a space of acceptance, love, sharing and healing where families can safely address their traumatic experiences and work towards creating a better future for themselves and their communities.
Please spread the word and help us get in contact with your friends, families, coworkers or anyone who you may think might want to donate.
