Marist House in Huelva welcomes young immigrants

The Casa de la Buena Madre of the Marist Brothers in Huelva, Spain (Mediterranea Province), which was gifted to Caritas Diocesana in 2017, is currently hosting five young immigrants from Guinea Bissau, Guinea Conakri, Senegal, Morocco and Cuba. The young people are between 18 and 20 years old. Four of them are Ex menas (Unaccompanied Foreign Minors in Spain) and the fifth is a student from Cuba who came to the country to study and due to the pandemic was left without a place to live.

The Brothers of Huelva gave the Marist house to the Diocesan Caritas of Huelva following the invitation of Pope Francis who asked all congregations to open their empty flats and houses to help the homeless.

The Casa de la Buena Madre has been in operation for almost two years and offers shelter to young people coming from centres for minors or other shelters. This house is permanently monitored and tutored by Caritas technicians and volunteers.
