Santa Casa da Misericórdia is a Portuguese charity whose mission is to treat and support the sick and the disabled, as well as assist the “exposed” - newborns abandoned in the institution-. It was founded in Lisbon in 1498 by Queen Leonor of Portugal .

It declares itself to be a Catholic lay brotherhood and to work through 14 Works of Mercy, seven of a spiritual nature: to teach the humble, to give good advice, to "correct" with charity those who do wrong, to console those who suffer, to pardon those who offend us, to suffer patiently, to pray for the living and for the deceased; and seven of a corporeal nature: to free the enslaved and to visit the imprisoned, to heal and assist the ill, to clothe the naked, to give food to the hungry , to give drink to the thirsty, to shelter travelers, and to bury the dead. All works have foundations in Christian doctrine, as in the biblical texts of the Gospel of St.
