Currently the Hogar cost $75,000 a year to run, just for the basics, to facilitate 24 girls. These include the girl’s medical/personal needs, their schooling cost, salaries and basic supplies of water and electricity.
To expand the home to include more fortunate girls and offer them the stability of the hogar would increase costs.
We collect all receipts of where the monies are used on a quarterly basis and work with the nuns to assign the funds where needed most or where the donor has specified.
The money is personally taken over by Rachel Collingwood in November on the annual trip over.
The donations come directly into our registered charity trust.
