Orfanato Niños de Cristo is an orphanage that houses more than 165 children who have been abandoned and often victims of abuse of many forms. The orphanage needs your support to meet the needs of food, clothing, staff, teachers and education. We are a registered 501(c)(3) organization in the United States.
|The children of the Orfanato Niños de Cristo are from all over the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Their backgrounds range from being abandoned, abused, as well as parents who are either deceased, in prison, face mental illnesses or have no resources or desire to support their child. These children spend their entire childhood and young adult life at the orphanage. Many are taken in at the request of the courts under the supervision of Conani (the federal agency for minor children), neighbors, police or other divisions of the government given they otherwise would have no home and no life.We encourage you to see the children. Despite their challenges in life, they are happy and full of spirit. This is a reflection of the peace, comfort, love and security by being a part of our family at Orfanato Niños de Cristo.|
When new children and visitors arrive at the orphanage, the welcome they receive is filled with compassion and warmth to allow them to feel at ease. It is often not unusual to see a new arrival often too traumatized to speak or much less smile. In a remarkably short period of time, they are running, playing, and laughing with the other children.
