Welcome to FUNDAHMER’s website (Fundación Hermano Mercedes Ruíz)!

We are a nonprofit social organization approved by the Salvadoran government in 2000. FUNDAHMER was founded to serve as an instrument of the Christian Base Communities of El Salvador (CEBES).  FUNDAHMER inherits the rich history of CEBES’s commitment, at national and international levels, to accompanying the poor in the struggle for justice.

We support community initiatives to transform the conditions of poverty, exclusion, and marginalization of populations in the zones of Morazan, La Libertad, Colon, and San Salvador.

We also promote the formation processes of community leaders, and seek opportunities for the self-sustainability of our work.

FUNDAHMER’s efforts are organized into the following areas:

Education – Development – Solidarity – Self-Sustainability
