Guests often ask if there is a charity they can help in Morelia, as a means for giving back to the community they are visiting. At Casona Rosa, we invite our guests to participate in helping Hogar Irekani Orphanage. Just bring your donations to us, as we ensure they are delivered on your behalf.
Sandra Martinez, who runs Hogar Irekani, is doing an amazing job of creating a family home environment for 26 children. This home was started in 2013 for children who come from dysfunctional families, or who had no parents at all. The goal of Hogar Irekani, is to provide the necessary support so these children become strong, independent adults. Sandra's long-term goal is to raise enough funds to buy a home with property, as they currently have no yard space outside. In the meantime, taking care of 26 children, aged infant to 23, is costly.
There are a number of ways you can donate - from bringing items from home, to purchasing supplies in Morelia, or making a cash donation. As Mexico does not have many social programs for assisting children living in poverty, your private contributions are greatly appreciated!
