The foundation of a good life is healthy food. Kids do better in school when they have good nutrition.
As of June, 2023, 96 generous donors have given to Casa Hogar for monthly food and essentials to provide $2022/month. We need $643 more per month or 26 more donors who give $25/month for Casa Hogar to have the food they need. We’ve come so far. Please give whatever you can.
In 2014, Laura Sanchez was a school teacher in a small town in Mexico. She was raising two children on her own while working full time as a public-school teacher. Laura noticed that one of her students – a teenage boy – kept coming to school in the same dirty clothes, and he seemed listless and inattentive. She suspected that perhaps he wasn’t getting enough to eat at home. Taking him aside she learned that this boy had recently become a street kid.
He had no father, he told Laura, and his mother was in a lengthy drug rehabilitation program. He was alone in the world, going to school in the daytime and scavenging for food at night. Laura took the boy home that evening and he stayed with her until his mother was released from her rehab program.
Laura wondered if any of her other students were in the same situation. For the next several weeks she took one student after another aside and privately asked how they were doing at home. She was stunned to learn that several other students were on their own because one or both of their parents were in jail or in a drug treatment program. All these children came home with her.
I promised each of them that I would take care of them as long as they needed me.
Imagine what your house would be like with 16 children living with you. How many of us could do what she has done? But Laura Sanchez just can’t say no to children who have no home or no responsible adult in their lives. Maybe we can’t start an orphanage in our own home, but what we can do is give Laura Sanchez the help she needs.
For the past nine years Laura has kept her promise to provide a home to any child who needed one. Can we promise to help her? If we can raise enough money to pay for food and other essential items every month, it will help Laura and the children survive. Please donate to keep her orphanage running.
If 100 World’s Children donors give $25 a month, the kids will always be fed.
Let’s help carry this heavy burden for this heroic woman.

A Successful Journey Out of Poverty Have you ever wondered how kids who grow up in an orphanage eventually find a husband or wife, get a job and then start a family? The journey from being an orphaned child to becoming a self-sufficient young adult requires a lot
