What do we do?

The social purpose of the Foundation Patronato María Auxiliadora is to develop comprehensive protection programs and projects for boys, girls and adolescents whose age does not exceed 16 years, focused on health care through alliances with professionals and institutions when this right is violated by access barriers. In development of its corporate purpose, the Foundation implements prevention, support, and empowerment actions for their mothers and / or caregivers; all guided according to the Foundation’s guidelines.

Health care

The Foundation provides care to children and adolescents who encounter barriers to accessing quality health care in a timely manner.

The Foundation supports beneficiaries through alliances with professionals and institutions, which provide services such as:

  • Specialized consultations
  • Surgeries
  • Procedures
  • Medications
  • Specialized exams
  • Obtaining glasses, wheelchairs, and other devices.

Provides help in comprehensive rehabilitation therapies to children and adolescents with hearing and intellectual disabilities, Down syndrome, spina bifida, developmental delays, autism, among others.

Supports mental health treatment for conduct and learning disorders with psychological and psychiatric care.

Guidance and support for parents and caregivers

We provide orientation to the parents and caregivers of our beneficiaries to strengthen them with adequate tools to guide and accompany their children in their physical and mental health processes.

We support the families of the beneficiaries in care routes and legal mechanisms (petition rights, contempt, requests and complains) when they present barriers to access to medical treatment.

We guide parents and caregivers in care routes when our professionals identify situations that put the beneficiaries or a family member at physical or psychological risk.

Prevention

We carry out actions through workshops and seminars for the prevention of situations that put the physical and mental health of the beneficiaries at risk.
