Nineteen children from Ciudad Juárez are fully integrated into the NPH Mexico family. February 10, 2012 - Mexico
NPH Mexico is thrilled to announce that we have changed the lives of 19 children who traveled all the way from Ciudad Juárez to join our family.
All 11 new children take a group photo with NPH Mexico’s social workers and the counselors from Ciudad Juarez.
The first eight children arrived in 2011 and 11 more just arrived in February. Although these children are very young, they all have experienced difficult pasts and have suffered greatly. Some of them have never attended school and do not know how to read or write. Others have parents who are serving time in jail for their involvement in criminal activity. Many of these children were orphaned or abandoned due to the extreme violence that is overtaking the cities along the U.S.-Mexico border. We are working diligently to make special arrangements to accommodate a total of 100 children from Ciudad Juárez into our home. As with all of our children, our goal is to provide them with a secure home and a loving environment to grow up in.
NPHI President Father Philip Cleary, National Director Rafael Bermúdez and our social workers are in constant communication with representatives from the child welfare agencies of Ciudad Juárez in order to organize the best plan of action to help these children who are in great need.
In February, NPH Mexico’s children and staff greeted the 11 new arrivals with enthusiasm and open arms, ready to provide them with the love and support they deserve. At NPH Mexico, these children can now leave their tragic pasts behind and look ahead to a pleasant childhood and a future filled with hope.
