Chihuahua (Agenzia Fides) - The Casa Hogar Karike was opened five years ago thanks to the generosity of a lady who welcomed three poor and abandoned children in her house. Since then visitors have increased and the needs of young children abound. Hence the magazine "El Heraldo de Chihuahua" has promoted the Navidar project which invites the whole community to share what one has with the goal of helping children who have no hope to receive love, warmth and gifts at Christmas.
Currently the Casa Hogar Karike has 23 residents, 9 boys and girls between 6 and 15 years of age who live in vulnerable conditions. In the Casa they receive care, love, food, education, shelter. Unfortunately it is a borrowed house, and within 4 months it has to be freed. The actual house is very small and lacks many necessary things. In the kitchen, for example, there is no kitchenette and cooking utensils. In the living area there is need for a new room and the dining area needs two tables, as there is no place to sit and eat. A wardrobe has been put in the girls’ bedroom but there is no furniture in both bedrooms, as well as mattresses and heating. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 13/12/2016)
