We are here for the above reasons. To bring healing to the hearts of those effected and the land. The need is great. Casa Aqua Azul is tucked away in the jungle, next door is a soccer field and a good school. Our community is peaceful and small. Our relationships with the local church is strong and so is our pastoral support. We are surrounded by the intense beauty of nature which promotes healing and allows the children to grow in a safe, loving environment.
