What is the Association of Families and Friends of La Casa (AFA)?

AFA is an association created by families and friends of La Casa de la Madre y el Niño, It is an independent legal entity that works as a helping hand for parents, adopted kids of La Casa and the institution itself. It intends to guide and serve every person in the community throughout the entire support net. It also leads additional projects that intend to raise funds that will allow the consolidation of the social mission of the institution.
