Here is what it says:
With yet another altruistic work, Caring Hearts in coordination with the Rehab Center CIRA, is helping with the construction of 4 workshops for this Rehab that specializes in interned treatment of people with drug addiction problems.
This was made known to us in an interview with the director and administrator of this social assistance home, Humberto Diaz, who added that this project was petitioned to Caring Hearts, who donated around 6 Thousand dollars of materials for the construction of these installations that comes as an improvement in the infrastructure of this place that at the same time assures that the treatment in this center is complete, as they offer professional help and training that are apt and worthy for those who in the home recuperating from addictions.
Humberto Dias recognized that this support from Caring Hearts through Ken Blose, is a significant improvement. They had these workshops but they were made with wood and other inferior materials. These installations will allow them to provide a better service as they will have better workshops in which they can work.
Car Body work and painting, Carpentry, Welding and General Mechanics are the trades that will be learned in worthy spaces made of resistant materials.
The director of CIRA said they are about 80% finished and it is planned for them to start using them in the third week of February.
He commented that in these workshops the more than 100 addicts en rehab that they attend to will have the opportunity of learning a trade that will be a big help when they leave the center, so they can maintain their families in a legal way. It is difficult for an ex addict to find a job, but with this training they can start their own business or be more fit to work in a place that employs the above mentioned trades.
