The Mauricio Aquino Foundation
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. MAF'S sole project is Our Parents’ Bones Campaign, an initiative to rescue the remains of the forced Disappeared in El Salvador's civil war. Many survivors of Disappeared persons live in the United States and are by-and-large American citizens and professional adults. They are searching for their parents’ bones, for the remains of their loved ones, so they can bring closure and reconciliation to themselves and their families.
