The Refuge is an orphanage is Mexico dedicated to changing the lives of kids! www.BuildTheRefuge.com.
Our story began six years ago while on a trip to visit an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. We saw poverty as we had never seen it before; we saw girls as young as eight years of age being sold for their bodies and we saw families that couldn’t afford to feed their children or send them to school. Our hearts broke as we looked at these children and we knew we were meant to start something new and different… not just providing a bed and food for these children, but a home that looked like a family instead of an institution. A home that provided love and care but also the skills necessary to leave behind a life of poverty, addiction, and abuse for a better life of love, education, and generosity.
This is why we are in Tijuana, to break cycles of poverty and abuse. To give these children a hope and future and to take children that have been rejected and abused and raise them up into successful adults that love well and give back to their community.
To do this we need your help! We currently have one home that is almost filled to capacity but there’s room for a handful more and a dream to have additional locations across Tijuana. To care for these children and expand into being able to rescue more children we need support! That’s where you come in. You can make a difference in the life of these children with your cash donations that go entirely to food, clothing, books, school uniforms, medicine, and other daily expenses.
