We recently had an opportunity to share on a popular hispanic radio station broad based over Mexico. We were asked specifics on what we do as an organization day to day.
We thought you might like these statistics of our day to day operations: Food is collected 7 days a week in the San Diego region and carried across the border into Tijuana Mexico 5 days a week. More than 20,000 pounds of food is distributed every week.
The recipients of this food are residents of many various facilities. Orphanages, Elderly homes, Infirmaries and rehabs. Among these there are 5 homes for the elderly, 9 homes for children, 5 medical clinics, 12 rehabs, 1 shelter for trafficking victims, and 1 shelter for deportees.
There are 12 outreaches each week, throughout Tijuana, to distribute food to hundreds of people who come through the food lines. In addition to these facilities and outreaches nearly 200 individual families are provided for each week. Among our Tijuana partners and team there are 8 organic grassroots churches represented. We also have a core team of 26 Chiropractors who rotate coming down twice a month to treat the men, women and children of the facilities and surrouding communities. The people love the care and hands on attention they are given!
Most recently, food was provided for a hundred or more Haitian and African refugees who were given shelter after long journeys to Mexico. Due to the civil unrest in their homelands, they have come to Mexico's bordertown of Tijuana awaiting appointments for right of asylum in the US. The already overburdened by migrants city of Tijuana is unable to care for all the new refugees. Thank you for your partnership that helps us offer that care!
