Las Creches permanently hosts 22 girls between 5 and 18 years old, which have been transferred from family courts for protection, due to domestic violence and severe rights violations. The funded project provides psychological support to these girls to determine accurate diagnosis and focused treatment with the objective of reinserting them to their social surroundings. The project coordinates with local schools, hospitals, social networks and family members, to provide a safe environment for the girls. The project also addresses nutrition issues, supporting a balanced diet and exercise for the girls to have a healthy development.
