Iris Violeta Foundation is a not for profit organization that helps adults and kids at the Rosales Hospital and the Benjamin Bloom children’s hospital in San Salvador.
The founder is Otilia Sorto Fuentes, a Salvadoran from Corinto in Morazan who currently lives in Oklahoma City, USA.
My first interaction with Otilia was on Twitter, we started talking via text messages and built a friendship.
I learned about what she does for Salvadorans with kidney disease at both hospitals Rosales, and Bloom. I had the pleasure of creating her website for her foundation, you can view it here at www.FundacionIrisVioleta.com.
About Iris Violeta Foundation.
The foundation is based in the city of Oklahoma in the USA. They help families in the city of Oklahoma and In El Salvador.
For example, In Oklahoma, they help 1st to 3rd graders who are behind on their reading skills.
Also, they provide food assistance to families with low resources. Additionally, they help pregnant women who need support.
In El Salvador, they help patients with kidney disease at both Hospital Rosales and Bloom. They do many things for these patients, such as providing vitamins and other types of assistance.

Who is Otilia Fuentes.
There are people in the world whose purpose in life is to help others who might need it. In my opinion, Otilia is one of those persons. It is not about what she says she does, it is about what you can see that she has done and continues to do.
Even though I only know her for a short period, I was able to see photos of the things that she has done. You can see the images by yourself by visiting her Facebook page.
Also, you can read an article written by Santiago Leiva, a reporter at Diario Co Latino in El Salvador. The report by Santiago is called, Otilia: “Hija de la luz.” This article was posted in April 2019.
