New shelter for children ready to go into service

There is a new shelter for children in Grecia. The Patronato Nacional de la Infancia has reached agreement with a local organization to operate the facility for five years.

The structure has five dormitories and other facilities to care for up to 15 youngsters. The Patronato is the child welfare agency.

The local Asociación Manos Unidas de Grecia received 132 million colons, about $264,000 from the Junta de Protección Social de San José to build the shelter. The Junta runs the national lottery.
