The Mauricio Aquino Foundation (MAF) is designated by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c) 3 as a tax-exempt entity and incorporated in the State of California.
MAF’s mission is the resolution of forced disappearances, the eradication of institutional impunity and the building of democratic institutions based on truth and reconciliation in El Salvador. Our Parents’ Bones Campaign is the sole project of the foundation.
The Foundation’s name is to honor Mauricio Aquino Chacón, the father of our Board Chair and co-founder Alexandra Aquino-Fike. Mauricio was a victim of forced disappearance by the Salvadoran military during the civil war. By honoring his life and martyrdom, the foundation wants to pay tribute to all men and women victims of forced disappearances in El Salvador and the rest of the world.
For more information or volunteer opportunities please contact us. We also invite you to donate to this extraordinary work for human rights and justice.
