Shelter: The Resting Place of Bethlehem
One service for the families of the patients who live far away is the shelter “La Posada de Belen,” (The Resting Place of Bethlehem) near the Regional Hospital Valentín Gómez Farias in Coatzacoalcos.
There the relatives who have to remain for several days or weeks can sleep, eat, wash clothes and rest for $10 pesos a day, while they wait to visit their sick relatives.
The shelter “La Posada de Belén” has existed since 1995; the new building since 2009. With the new building, we can serve around 4000 persons in a year.
We are delighted that our visitors can find support in the warm hospitality offered by the personnel as well as strength and peace in the tiny chapel or grotto in the back yard.
