"I opened it, read it, and then shared it with the whole team. They were all very excited to know that their hard work and sacrifice had received the recognition of a world leader like Pope Francis.”

In the letter, the pope encouraged the employees at the center to continue with their work with children.

According to a recent study in Argentina, about 9,122 children were abused in 2015.

The global figures are worse. According to UNICEF, six out of 10 children suffer physical abuse on a daily basis. Every five minutes, one of them dies.

The center has created a campaign called #Lavozdeloschicxs by denouncing abused children and adolescents in Argentina.
