526. Virgen de la Asunción home

The Virgen de la Asunción home caught fire in 2017 creating a national tragedy when it became clear that 35 persons died in the fire – mostly juvenile and children.

But articles related to the fire also showed trouble long before the fire took place. Too many children confined to the facility compared with lack of supervision and background checks of employees had resulted in abuse. Despite the tragedy there is little hope of improvement because it seems that the political system lacks interest in the well-being of the children.

It could not have been fun to be there as a child.
