Violence in Juarez leaves many children orphaned.

I would like to thank those of you who have donated towards this project. It means a lot to us. But more importantly, it means a lot to the children of Juarez.

Many of you have heard about the violence that exists in this City. It has had a tremendous impact on vulnerable children. The El Paso Times newspaper talked about a child who lost his father the day he turned 9. This is just one of many children whose lives have changed forever.

Violence in Juarez has increased and as a result, the number of orphans has increased. Some orphanages are not even equiped to handle the huge influx of orphans. Juarez has been infamously title "The homicide capital of the world"

Lets continue helping these children. They shouldn't pay for the mistakes of the adults.
