Manos de Amor is a nonprofit organization that was born from the desire of a group of citizens of Bucerias to help the less fortunate, especially the children of Bahia de Banderas. It was formed on April 13, 2004.

Our hope is to provide these children with food, clothing and shelter, ensure that they attend school and give them a safe haven for as long as necessary.

Hopefully, when the home situation improves, they can return to their families or, in some cases, be placed in adoptive homes.
