|| Our mission is help, assist and offer treatment and rehabilitation to people with addictions problems. REMAR Foundation works with complete programs. We place emphasis on the biological, psychic, psychological and spiritual surroundings of the individual. Our population lives in conditions of poverty and extreme poverty, and we provide them with free assistance in shelters of the Institution.
The children and young people under our care are received by judicial resolutions only. The beneficiaries come from all over the country, but most frequently from the metropolitan area, northern and western region.
REMAR Foundation was founded 25 years ago in Spain and began in Central America 13 years ago. Today we have Treatment Centers throughout the entire region, and we have in Guatemala the Head Office for Central American countries and Belize.
In 2007, a permanent group was brought into service, and our statistics in the last year show an average of 1,250 people have been assisted (50% children, 35% youth and the rest adults and more elderly people).
