About Our Foundation


Mama Chila Foundation

The Mama Chila Foundation is dedicated to providing support to individuals who, as children, were separated from their biological families during armed conflicts as they navigate the experience of rebuilding relationships with their families.

It was established by Nelson/Roberto who was forcibly separated from his family during the Salvadoran civil war. Mama Chila was Nelson/Roberto’s Maternal Grandmother and was the driving force behind his family’s reunion in 1997. We are proud to honor her legacy by helping more Salvadoran families reunite.
