World Emergency Relief funding has enabled a safe house for abused and vulnerable children to be built at the Integracion Juvenil Dona Ana Centre in Puerto Plata, DR. The centre was officially opened by Alex Haxton, WER UK Director of Operations, in March 2006.
The Safe House works in conjunction with the IJ Day Centre and referral centres in the Aqua Negro and Playa Oueste slum areas. Up to 12 children can be accommodated at the Safe House, where they are cared for and counselled by specialist psychologists and social workers.
