The mission of Casa Corazón de la Misericordia (Heart of Mercy House), a home for children with HIV/AIDS who have been orphaned or abandoned or whose parents no longer care for them for economic or health reasons, is to create an integral, loving environment in which children can live fully. The Casa seeks to assure each child the necessary conditions to optimize the quality of life by providing the basic necessities, physical as well as psychological, sociological and spiritual; to create a milieu in which the human rights of each child are respected; and to accompany each child in an integral process of development whether through dying or in improved health.
This mission is
an expression of the mission of the Sisters of Mercy, a Roman Catholic
religious order committed to the service of the poor, the sick and the
marginalized, especially women and children. The Sisters of Mercy have
been serving in Honduras since 1959.
