Helping and accompanying terminally ill children in Costa Rica

The situation of many children, who are suffering from serious illnesses or are in a terminal state, is made worse when the patients have a difficult home environment, with scarce economic resources, low educational levels and dysfunctional factors such as violence within the family or drug addiction.
