The purpose of Casa Santa Teresinha 

We believe that it is possible to fight prejudice and increase the quality of life of children and adolescents with genodermatoses. With the strength and unity of people with a similar and interested outlook, we promote sustainable assistance to people with genodermatoses and their families, in order to enable their social inclusion and active participation in the community.

Casa Santa Teresinha takes care of children and teenagers with the most dramatic skin diseases.
