This Might be their Only Meal All Day

This June, U.S. humanitarian worker Esperanza Lozoya and volunteers with La Luz de la Esperanza Palomas Outreach began serving a daily summer meal to 400 children in Palomas, Chihuahua. Volunteers from another organization, Border Partners, have in the past provided breakfast burritos.

The lunch provided as part of the summer program is the only daily food for many children in Mexico's only populated town along New Mexico's border with Mexico. 

Volunteers need your help to continue to provide assistance to Palomas.  To aid Lozoya's work in nutrition, health and child education in this
community (located across the border from Columbus, N.M.), please contact Victoria Tester at (575) 536-9726, or childrenofpalomas@yahoo.com
