Sanctuary House Children’s Center was started in June 2006 as an integral part of the services provided by Hospital Loma de Luz on the North Coast of Honduras. The Center can accommodate up to 40 children and provides employment for 17 Honduran staff. This service is aimed at 3 main groups of children:
After eight years, we have had 93 children in our care. The children have ranged in ages from 3 weeks old to 19 years old and they have had a whole variety of different needs. Some of our children have no particular social problem and only live in the center to access education; others have severe and enduring disabilities and require 24/7 care, but the majority are in-between. Many of the children live with us temporarily as we work towards reconciling families, wherever that is possible.
The Children’s Services were established and are managed by Iain & Liz McKenzie, who along with their son Samuel moved to Honduras directly from the Highlands of Scotland. They have served with Cornerstone since 2004.
