The mission of the Fondation Luxembourg-El Salvador shelter is to provide for the most urgent needs of the beneficiaries and their children, to help them overcome crises, to accompany them in a process of improving their self-confidence, and to develop their capacity to work so that in the near future they can find a job and provide for themselves. The shelter also welcomes women who are victims of domestic violence.
