Casa Misericordia

A Special Kind of Love

Women with special needs who are unable to function in society are often defenseless, especially in impoverished countries like Honduras. Casa Misericordia was organized as an extension of Hogar de Niños in order to provide a safe place for these young women. Deep emotional, psychological, and mental illness, as well as deafness and Down Syndrome, bring abuse and disdain from even close family members.

But at Casa Misericordia they are able to live without fear. Cared for by a patient Christian staff who willingly give them the extra time and attention they need, they are loved and nurtured. They enjoy working together, doing crafts, and learning skills to better care for themselves and one another.

Psalm 3:3

But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
