About Mama Carmen

Mama Carmen and her husband started the Casa Hogar Sion Orphanage when they sold their home to buy land and start the orphanage four years ago. They have between 90 and 100 children, most of whom Carmen takes from the streets, or that are dropped off by families.

They receive support from the Corazón de Vida Foundation and they are in need of $20,000 more per year to support staff (3 workers care for 14 babies), educational needs, and job skills training for teens.
