Give Fresh Produce to Children in Mexico
You can help provide a variety of seasonal fresh produce such as bananas, oranges, watermelon, papaya, apples, mangoes or "tunas", a cactus fruit native to Mexico, to school children in the orphanage. With your help, Friends of Orphans will help more than 500 children enjoy fruit as a snack or with their meals everyday.
Friends of the Orphans' priority is to raise healthy children in a safe and welcoming home environment. They work hard to give the children a balanced, nutritious diet. One of their goals is to provide fresh fruit as a snack or with their meals everyday and to serve seasonal vegetables in the main dishes. Research shows that providing a variety of fruits and vegetables will help to nourish their bodies and minds, help them develop physically, prevent micro-nutrient deficiencies, and excel in school.
About Friends of Orphans
Partner since March, 2011
Friends of the Orphans is dedicated to improving the lives of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children through the support of the Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters") network of orphanages in Latin America and the Caribbean. Friends of the Orphans supports the NPH homes and their outreach programs through fundraising and volunteer efforts. Together, they transform the lives of NPH children by creating families for life through values of unconditional love, shared responsibility and education. This enables children to grow into caring and productive members of their communities. Every day, Friends of the Orphans supports more than 3,700 children in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru. Since its founding in 1954, NPH has assisted nearly 16,000 children. In 2010, NPH outreach programs assisted over one million children and adults in Haiti alone.
