Life as an orphan in Mexico can be extremely tough. It is estimated that over 1.5 million children in Mexico are orphans, and almost all of these children have faced some form of abandonment, abuse, neglect, exploitation, extreme poverty or violence.
Unlike the U.S. government, the Mexican government does not fund or provide any programs to help orphaned or abandoned children- so orphan homes are totally reliant on the donations and efforts of those with a heart to reach out and help. With almost half of Mexicans living in poverty and facing an environment where gangs, traffickers, and drug dealers often prey on neglected children, the need to help is too big to ignore.The orphanage we are currently working with and supporting known as La Tribe de Jesus, now houses over 70 orphaned children. The goal is give these kids the basic needs, of food, housing and education so that their future can be brighter than their past. 100% of your donations will go to the cause of these children. Right now their biggest need is to provide beds for about 20 of the kids that are sleeping on the floor. They are in the process of turning the garage/shed area into a small dormitory for the older teens. Your donations are very much appreciated in this great time of need.
