The donation will go towards the development and construction of one of Maestro Care’s new orphanages and schools for over 200 children in Barranquilla, Colombia.  In 2013, Goya donated an additional $150,000 to the construction of Maestro Care’s first orphanage for over 100 children in La Romana, Dominican Republic and recently provided 50,000 pounds of food. “We’ve supported The Maestro Cares Foundation from the beginning because we believe in the power of their mission: to change the destiny and environment of these children,” says Bob Unanue, President of Goya Foods.  “With the alarming number of orphans in South America and the personal dedication of Marc Anthony, Henry Cardenas and staff members, we are honored to be a part of their mission and to see their efforts and hard work grow.”

The new complex, which measures 30,000 square feet, will feature state-of-the-art designs and include a kitchen, laundry room, cafeteria, library, church, classrooms, dorm rooms, health clinic, a teacher’s lounge, workshop area, business center, and indoor and outdoor recreational areas including a soccer field.  “We are deeply grateful for our partnership with Goya Foods and their support of the mission of the Maestro Cares Foundation.  Having Goya’s support for our first project in the Dominican Republic and now our second project in Colombia demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to improving the lives of the neediest children in Latin America,” says Marc Anthony, founder of the foundation.

The donation will help to provide housing, clothing, food and staff while assisting in the academic, social and recreational development of the children through various programs.
