Indigenous Families Can Finally Stay Together While Children Receive Medical Treatment


In the past, the only way for indigenous children born with serious medical conditions to receive the necessary medical care was for them to live at state-run institutions for the duration of their treatment. The parents were left with no choice but to return home to their villages without their babies, while the children were left to endure their struggle alone.

Now, in addition to the essential services they’ve provided since 2013, St. Francis Emmaus Center is working with local medical personnel to provide treatment without separating families. Parents are now able to stay with their children to provide love and support- a crucial part of the treatment and recovery process.
