Last summer, we began growing crops and purchasing livestock at Kenbe Fem, steps in the long-term plan to make the orphanage self-sustaining.
Last month, a new baby goat was born!
Frantzo and four of the children have had the Zika Virus. All are recovered and doing well. Thank you to the Kenbe Fem sponsors who make it possible for the children to get medical care when they are sick.
JANUARY 2016 EYE SURGERIES
Thank you to Dr. Greg Clariday & Tyrus Demouchet of Coastal Eye Associates and to the team from Gateway Community Church. Together, they did 96 free eye surgeries on bilaterally blind patients!
Many thanks to the volunteer groups that packaged rice and beans during November and December of 2015... you make it possible for us to deliver 12,500 pounds to local food pantries and The United Methodist Church of Mexico's School Lunch Program.
In February, we began preparing the land for the first planting. A team from First United Methodist Church, Pearland, will be coming out on March 5th to plant the first two acres of corn. This corn will be given to local food banks.
