CHIRIA, Casa Hogar de Integracion y Rehabilitacion de Infantes y Adolescentes, translated “A Safe Home for the Assimilation and Rehabilitation of Children and Adolescents” is located in Tuxtepec, Mexico. It was started by local Pastors Reynaldo and Marta Tapia as their heartfelt response to the numerous children they saw living on the streets or in very troubled home situations. As the name implies, it is a refuge for children of all ages from infants to adolescents.
Over the past 11 years, CHIRIA has attended to more than 170 children. Currently, CHIRIA is home to 39 children, between the ages of 2 and 18 years old.
Wings of Eagles International first learned of CHIRIA in 2004. At the time, there were just 12 children that were being lovingly cared for solely through the resources of the small local church in Tuxtepec. Without any support from the outside, resources were very limited and strained. That is when the sponsorship program was started. It has grown from 12 children in 2004 to over 40 today.
CHIRIA was founded in 1999 with the mission of attending to indigent children, victims of maltreatment by their families, sexual abuse and abandonment.
CHIRIA exists to provide a safe environment for these children where they are shown the life changing love of God firsthand.
