Needs at the Hogar Del Niño - The Hogar del Niño is our local orphanage relying on the community for support as this home is not funded by the government. If you have not yet visited, come meet Joel and Alicia Hernandez and their staff of volunteers. This team cares for boys and girls placed by DIF who are in need of protective care. The Hogar del Niño is located north of Todos Santos just off the highway before the Pemex. Look for the signs.

Cash donations are always in need. Donating will soon be available online, but in the meantime you can make a deposit at the Banorte Bank - acct. # 0666456418 (pesos) and 0662765028 (US dollar). If wiring money, the clave # is 072047006664564184. If you prefer to shop in lieu of a cash donation, a sewing kit is needed. The kids need: hand cream, black shoe polish, hair gel, shampoo and hair supplies (especially the little bands called "ligas"). Art supplies such as drawing paper and paints would be appreciated. Then there is always a need for food such as fruit, eggs, and cereal. If you would like to provide meals, contact Lisa Welch at lwelsch [-a t-] cbriveras.com.
