Weekly food delivery for the Rice and Beans Program
Susannah Eppich from Blacklock Fine Arts Primary School in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.

It doesn’t just take a village to raise a child it takes a world!
The first shipment of school shoes arrived. We ordered them wholesale from the factory in Leon. Leather shoes for an average cost of 120 pesos or $7.00 US.
They will be included in the backpacks that the kids will receive for Christmas unless, of course, a child needs them sooner. Just one more thing we do for our bright young scholars at Casa Para Niños del Pacifico. No wonder they are so motivated to maintain high marks.
Donations from the new President of DIF (Department of Development of Family)
Even though Lizette Tapia (the new Meyer’s wife and future President of the DIF as of 1 October 2018) has not officially taken office yet she is already visiting in the community and making donations where there is a need. I am impressed! She sent backpacks and school supplies to Casa Para Ninos where all the students are low income and high achievers.
