Economy, broken families create need for help

In a recent email from Cristina Estrada, a volunteer in Anapra, Mexico.

Let me tell you something very important: Not all children have the same needs.

Some children and youth need more than others and you may be thinking, “What do parents do for their children?”

They work hard but the salaries are very low, and also, because of the economic crisis many parents have no work.

We have many broken families because the father has migrated to the US “looking for a better future” and forgotten his children and wife. Sad truth.

We also have single mothers who work but it is not enough. And every family is different so that aid is given according to need.
