TODOS SANTOS - Friends of Hogar del Nino Report

Hogar del Nino A.C. has been caring for the needs of foster and orphaned children in Todos Santos now for over 5 months. The children come to Hogar del Nino through the government agency DIF and the children are from a over Southern Baja. Currently Hogar del Nino has 22 children in their care ages 5 to 14. Joel Hernandez is the director along with his wife Alicia.

The "Meals on Wheels" drive has been very successful and I want to thank many of you for preparing and bringing food to the children. We currently have volunteers bringing meals 2 times a week and welcome all who want to participate. The meals are greatly appreciated as food is the #1 priority.
