Founded in 1973 by Padre João and a group of couples, Associação Maria Helen Drexel – AMHD is a civil organization that receives children and teenagers with violated or threatened basic rights, providing protection, assistance, health and education and promoting their development.

Maintained and managed by the community, its contributors are individuals and legal entities helping through actions, donations and projects that benefit the children and their biologic families.

Localfrio’s Central Office “adopted” this institution and helps through monthly funding campaigns, the collection of Tax Invoices without Individual Taxpayer IDs (CPF) and volunteer employee work.
