Tortillas = Sustainability

The Matamoros Children's Home (MCH) continues to be a model of excellence among non-government organizations in Mexico. Why? Because, in a nation where economic conditions are dire, the MCH serves as a resounding gong that, with God, self-sufficiency is indeed possible!

The MCH is excited to announce the delivery of its first tortilla maker on June 25! Not only will the organization's new kitchen and tortilla maker equip the MCH to expand its care to orphans, but it will allow the home to make tortillas to sell, thereby producing additional income for the Matamoros Children's Home.

The MCH has already realized great success with its farming projects as a mode of self-sufficiency, but the addition of the new tortilla maker is sure to catapult the home to even greater heights, further impacting the lives of citizens throughout Matamoros!

"Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll eat for a lifetime." Your contribution to the Matamoros Children's Home is an investment in the future of Mexico!
