Manos de Amor is a nonprofit organization that was born from the desire of a group of citizens of Bucerias to help the less fortunate, especially the children of Bahia de Banderas. It was formed on April 13, 2004. At that time there was nowhere for the children of the bay to go who were in need. The children who are housed in this Casa Hogar are children whose parents or family are either unwilling or unable to care for them. Our hope is to provide these children with food, clothing and shelter, ensure that they attend school and give them a safe haven for as long as necessary. Hopefully when the home situation improves, they can return to their families.
