Foundation Obra Mercedaria

We channel the social action of the Mercedarios

The Foundation works against poverty and social exclusion, opening the way to freedom

Our main courses of action are prisons and cooperation with the 3rd world

We are taken by the whole process before, during and after the sentence. Through different stages -prevention, support and reinsertion-, we feel that the captive upheld and integrated into society.

They are at the expense of the most disadvantages. Cooperate with Mozambique, Guatemala, Venezuela, Panamá and El Salvador, as well as the tract of people (support for gifts, abused children) and we work against the poor (food bank, canteens, clothing and medicines) in favour of education.
